“… People themselves set their own fate… from moments of fellowship, friendship, chance and dreams, which were once or are now reality. It is necessary only with immense persistence and effort to maintain the gift which nature has presented us with and, thought there is the risk of costly failure, not to fear going further to our goal…

Believe me, it is an exquisite feeling to look back and see that one‘s life and endeavours have borne fruit. And the Slovak earth, even in barren times, has produced its fruit. If today our music is in full bloom, if it has from its depths something to tell the world which we have become accustomed to calling modern, let us thank our land for it, the songs of this land. Let us protect it, indeed, it has shone on our centuries-long history and given us love and life…”
