Notes & Reviews:

This recording offers listeners over an hour of music by Leos Janácek. From the cantata Amarus to orchestral music from The Cunning Little Vixen and From the House of the Dead, Václav Neumann leads the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, soloists and the Prague Philharmonic Choir in idiomatically accurate and stunningly powerful performances. Neumann has been called the undisputed successor to legendary Czech conductors Václav Talich and Karel Ancerl.
