Taking its title from the village in which Leoš Janáček was born, this album of chamber works by the prize-winning Portuguese composer Sérgio Azevedo reveals his deep affinity for the music and personality of the great Czech composer. Using fragments from Janáček’s In the Mists and On an Overgrown Path has allowed Azevedo to create a ‘doppelgänger’ of the original material. It draws his music in unsuspected directions, either abandoning the fragments as the music develops or generating new aural contexts. The resultant music represents an unclassifiable but profound communication between two composers from two different epochs.

Composer Sérgio Azevedo has based some of his music in this latest album on Janáček’s piano piece In the Mists – the original work can be found on 8553587 (Janáček Piano Music Vol.2). Azevedo’s Hukvaldy Sonata also uses fragments from Janáček’s On an Overgrown Path – the original is available on 8553586 (Janáček Piano Music Vol.1).
