ArtistsPrague Radio Symphony Orchestra
Jenufa was the first opera to be set to a prose text. The currently globally celebrated piece reflected the sorrow Janáček felt after the death of his two beloved children and gave rise to a deep personal crisis, when in 1903 the National Theatre in Prague declined to stage the piece on the grounds that it was of dubious artistic quality. In Fate, Janáček experimented with and explored the potentialities of the musical-dramatic form itself. Similarly to Jenufa, it too met with rejection and would only be premiered 30 years after the composer’s death. Katya Kabanova is one of the greatest Janáček works and one of the most beautiful lyric operas of the 20th century and beyond.
The CD presents Janáček’s singular musical idiom in suites from his three pivotal operas. The artists featured on the recording, the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra and the conductor Tomáš Netopil, have garnered acclaim with two previous Janáček projects (Sinfonietta, Taras Bulba, etc., SU4131; Glagolitic Mass, The Eternal Gospel, SU4150), both of them voted Gramophone Editor’s Choice.
