Notes & Reviews:

Conductor Edward Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic here commence their series devoted to Leos? Janac?ek's orchestral works. This opening salvo features three works from Janac?ek's late, great period: The Sinfonietta, one of the composer's most successful and popular works; the Capriccio, with pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet taking on the left-hand solo part, and, restored to its original, striking orchestration by Sir Charles Mackerras, the suite of instrumental interludes from Janac?ek's 1923 opera 'The Cunning Little Vixen'.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
This recording has some interesting things to say about Janacek, and I look forward to hearing more. Playing and sound are excellent. The notes by Tyrrell, author of a huge new biography of Janacek, are very helpful.
