Notes and Editorial Reviews

Janácek first achieved worldwide fame with his Sinfonietta of 1926, written when he was already 72 years old. Its brilliant, tuneful originality has enabled it to become the chief work of this long under-appreciated genius to take its place in the standard repertory. This recording also presents two other orchestral masterpieces: the Violin Concerto, subtitled “Pilgrimage of the Soul,” which was originally written in 1926 and reconstructed in 1988; and the orchestral suite from his fanciful opera The Cunning Little Vixen. The eminent Czech conductor Václav Neumann is joined here in the concerto by the brilliant violinist Christiane Edinger, who today performs with the leading orchestras.
