Notes & Reviews:

In this recoding by the award-winning, Janácek Chamber Orchestra, features music by Czech composers Janácek, Martinu, and Hass. This outstanding recording will be remembered most for its dramatic power, energy and spirited finale.

"The centrepiece of this disc is Pavel Haas's Study, written in 1943 in the concentration camp at Terezín...Its quality is undeniable, and while we should never forget the circumstances in which it was written, it also seems right that Haas's music should be placed alongside works by both his teacher Janácek and his exiled contemporary Martinu...The Janácek Chamber Orchestra's performances make up in excitement for what they occasionally lack in finesse." -The Guardian
