About

At mid price for the first time - part of the definitive cycle of Janacek's operas under Sir Charles Mackerras, with a superb central performance from the swedish soprano Elisabeth Söderström.
 
The Decca recordings of the operas of Leos Janacek are without question definitive recordings of these remarkable music dramas. Sir Charles Mackerras was the central figure in bringing these powerfully intense operas to the attention of the wider world and to this day he remains the master interpreter of this searingly emotional music.

Reviews

The Decca CDs bring a performance from Mackerras and his team which is deeply sympathetic, strongly dramatic and superbly recorded. Elisabeth Söderström creates a touching portrait of the girl caught in a family tragedy. ... but dominating the whole drama is the Kostelnicka of Eva Randová.
