About

The operas of Leoš Janáček have been gaining their rightful place in major opera houses the world over.

First staged in 1904, Jenůfa, a powerful tragedy set in a Moravian village, launched Janáček’s operatic career.

The Excursions of Mr Brouček, which had its premičre in 1920, is his most candidly satirical opera, rich in high jinx as the bumptious Prague publican travels to the Moon and back to the 15th century.

Peter Breiner, who created the compelling orchestral suites heard on this disc, conducts these world premičre recordings.

II. All are getting married – Every couple must get over its problems
III. Are you feeling sad, Jenůfa?

The Excursions of Mr Brouček – Suite (arr. Peter Breiner)
