Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

Janacek left only a few piano masterpieces, their language forming a sort of dreamlike counterpoint to his fantastic operatic repertoire. Slavka Pechocova's playing reflects the rigor of her first teacher, Martin Hrsel, and the almost- Impressionistic expressiveness of her second, Ivan Moravec. This highly spirited, recording of Janacek's piano pieces shows off the best of both of these key aspects of her playing style. A rising star, Pechocova made her Proms debut last year with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Jiri Belohlavek in Martinu's 'Concerto for 2 Pianos'.

"Slavka Pechokova is a new pianist to me...Her performances of these Janacek works are stunning. They seem to cast a more nuanced and gentle light on them than usual...they cast an interesting new ligjt. The SACD is splendidly recorded. Good notes."-American Record Guide
