Slovakia - Silver 10 coin - Jan Cikker the 100th Anniversary of the Birth (09/12/2011)

Kremnica Mint offers you the newest Slovak silver collector coin in nominal value of 10 euro "Jan Cikker – the 100th Anniversary of the Birth".

Ján Cikker (29 July 1911 - 21 December 1989) is one of the most distinguished Slovak composers and a leading representative of Slovak classical music. His talent and creativity resulted in work of great artistic value that has proved an inspiration to subsequent generations of composers. He is among the best of what Slovakia can offer the world in the field of culture and arts.
While his work ran a gamut of genres, it was in opera where he had the greatest impact, achieving success at the world's major playhouses with the operas Juro Jánošík, Beg Bajazid, Mister Scrooge, Resurrection, Play about Love and Death, Coriolanus, The Siege of Bystrica, Judgment, and From the Life of Insects.
In recognition of his work, he was awarded Vienna University's Gottfried von Herder Prize for humanism and ethical principles (1966) and the UNESCO prize for music (1979), as well as being granted the title of National Artist in Slovakia. In 2011, he was posthumously awarded the Order of Ľudovít Štúr - First Class. (source: NBS)
