Product description

Product Description

This is the second volume in our series devoted to the orchestral works of Janáek, with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and Edward Gardner. The repertoire on this disc includes some of the greatest programmatic pieces by the composer.

Unsurprisingly, the first piece featured here is Jealousy his first declared piece of programme music, originally written to preface the opera Jenfa but never included in any production of it during his lifetime. Both The Ballad of Blaník and The Fiddler's Child (also known as a 'ballad for orchestra') are characterised by the use of musicals symbols, reflecting the Czech poems on which the pieces are based and also some of the composer's personal reflections and responses.

The one-movement violin concerto The Wandering of a Little Soul is a more mysterious piece, with uncertainties surrounding the title, the date of creation, and the goals of its composition. Like the unfinished Danube symphony, the version recorded here has been reconstructed by Milo tdro and Leo Faltus from Janáek's sketches.

An interpretation of the famous tale by Gogol, Taras Bulba was completed in 1915 and was Janáek's most substantial orchestral work to date. It is inflected with folk dances, battle and horse-riding music, suffering and love, and brought to a grandiloquent apotheosis, in orchestration of almost cinematic vividness.


The cathartic climax of Taras Bulba is overwhelming. Magnificent performances. Performance ***** Recording ***** BBC MUSIC ORCHESTRAL CHOICE --BBC Music Magazine,July'15
