Eugen Prochác, Ján Slávik, Juraj Burian, Vlado Sirota, Jon Anderson & Peter Machajdík rehearsing CTTE
Slovak composer Peter Machajdík has worked with Jon Anderson, one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock, since 2008. They performed together at Tribute to Freedom in Bratislava on 15 August 2009, in the Concert Hall of the Slovak Radio Bratislava on 6 August 2012, and at Sadler's Wells in London on 8 August 2012.
In 2008 Anderson appeared on the song "Sadness of Flowing" which he co-wrote for Machajdík's critically-acclaimed album Namah.
"Sadness of Flowing" is a 5-part / 10-minute composition by Peter Machajdík with a vocal added by Anderson. To my ears, this may be the best work Jon Anderson has done for half a decade, with an intimate, delicate quality to his vocal. Namah is also one of the first releases since Anderson suffered acute respiratory failure in May 2008, which has kept him from performing since.
