Notes and Editorial Reviews

In today's world of flashing neon tragedies the story of Jenufa would hardly seem to pierce the din, but the deep sadness of this once radical, controversial word has persisted over time. This live recording from the Malmo Opera and director Orpha Phelan feels heartbreakingly familiar and affecting as only a tragedy of ordinary human beings can. Leoš Janácek
