Notes & Reviews:

Many seasoned conductors keep returning to Janacek's symphonic works - owing to their sparkling expressiveness, colourful emotions and lucid purity drawn deep from the wellspring of folk music. Jakub Hrusa proves that fascination with Janacek's music applies to the youngest generation of conductors too. The recording opens with six ebullient 'Lachian Dances' and when it comes to 'The Cunning Little Vixen', Jakub Hrusa has chosen the rarely performed version of the Suite arranged by Frantisek Jilek, a connoisseur of Janacek's ouvre. His Suite retains Janacek's original instrumentation and spans the trajectory of the opera's action.
