“Cimbálenka the Nymph and the learned housefly BuzzWhizz accompany cimbalom players – and, to an extent, their teachers – through the magical landscape of the cimbalom. Their aim is not to teach anyone anything – they merely wish to show you how magically beautiful the world of the cimbalom is, how many mysteries it contains, how many adventures it promises…”

I spent about a year writing the Cimbálovánky (although actually setting down the texts and pieces took me less than a month) and thankfully, I was not alone. I had help from Cimbálenka the Nymph, BuzzWhizz the Housefly, and many other friends and magical beings from the cimbalom landscape. Bot the Robot helped me find my shoes, I had a lovely race with Bohumil the High-Speed Snail, and I joined Ferdinand the Tractor for a good old fashioned field ploughing. All in all, we put together some sixty pieces and stories, and, along with BuzzWhizz the Housefly, we went through not only the basic techniques of cimbalom playing, but also terms like dynamics, tempo, or active inner silence.

And when discussing the Cimbálovánky, I can never forget to mention Tomáš Volkmer. He is a friend of mine who likes to draw and who helped me create many new pieces through graphic notation. He also took on the difficult task of illustrating all participants, which is no easy feat – they are, after all, magical!
