Notes & Reviews:

Despite his profiles as one of the most important operatic composers of the 20th century, Leos Janacek remains a largely unknown figure in terms of many of his other compositions. The pianist Charles Owen began his musical studies at the Yehudi Menuhin School and continued at the Royal College of Music. His concert activities are diverse and extensive, encompassing solo, concerto and chamber music appearances. A specialist in Janacek's music, he writes: "Studying and performing these absorbing pieces has been an engrossing and enriching experience. It may not be music which reveals all its secrets to the listener at once, but one which yields more and more rewards on closer acquaintance."
