            The Viktor Kalabis and Zuzana Růžičková Foundation, based in the United States, is dedicated to two remarkable people whose partnership played central roles at the heart of Czech music for more than 50 years. Living in Prague, Zuzana and Viktor refused to join the Communist Party and faced endless adversities, yet they achieved enormous international success.

Viktor composed a number of pieces for Zuzana and none was more testing than one recorded for the film – Zuzana: Music Is Life – so enjoy this introduction by Zuzana to Viktor's CANONIC INVENTIONS.
