About

Like many of Janáček’s late masterpieces, the genesis of the Diary is unseparable from its composer’s intense, obsessional love for Kamila Stösslová. A song-cycle like no other, here it’s the main work in a recital which showcases the extraordinary talents of Nicky Spence, Václava Housková and the vocal trio Voice.

Voice:
- Victoria Couper
- Clemmie Franks
- Emily Burn

Reviews

[Spence] sounds wonderfully fresh and engaged throughout, presenting a vividly clear characterisation of the self-taught man captured by the ‘lovely verses about that gypsy love’... Not only does Spence’s voice offer a rare mix of steely strength and velvety tenderness but his bright, vibrant timbre communicates a touching, wide-eyed sense of ardent longing, tinged with melancholy. ... Spence and Housková pick up their double act once more in the irresistible Moravian Folk Poetry in Songs. It’s a performance that captures the set’s characteristic mix of humour and melancholy beautifully, with too many lovely touches to list... a superb achievement by Spence and Drake, in particular, and as persuasive an introduction to Janáček’s songs as you’ll find.  Hugo Shirley (Recording of the Month)
