JANÁČEK, Leoš - Composers

   Found CDs: 34
 

Composer: JANÁČEK, Leoš ((1854-1928))
JANÁČEK, Leoš His/her life:
Janáček studied in Prague, Leipzig and Wien. From 1881 till 1888 he worked as conductor of the Philharmonic society there. He established his own style in composition after intense studies of volkmusic and the melody of the spoken language. However, in this time Janáček still was not important in Prague. This changed quickly with his originally in 1904 written opera "Jenufa", which was perfomed in 1916 in Prague and later in Wien. In 1919 Janacek became Professor of composition at the Conservatorium in Prague, which he led till 1925. The late operas "Katja Kabanova" (1921) and "Das schlaue Füchslein" (1924) became a great success. Janáček died on August 12th 1928 in Ostrava. (contribution by <Anne27

IVANA GAVRIĆ - IN THE MISTS - Janáček - Schubert - Liszt - Rachmaninov

IVANA GAVRIĆ - IN THE MISTS - Janáček - Schubert - Liszt - Rachmaninov
ID: CHRCD009
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music

A stunning new solo release from young pianist, Ivana Gavric, taking its title from the featured Janáček work, In The Mists.

Mid-2010 marks a double debut for Sarajevo-born In The Mists pianist, Ivana Gavrić, who will play at the Wigmore Hall for her first solo recital there, and in association with Champs Hill Records, release her first CD, In The Mists.

Moving to London in 1992 at the start of the Bosnian War, Ivana, the daughter of a pianist and then aged 12, studied at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Cambridge University, and the Royal College of Music.

About her, Musical Opinion recently wrote: ‘Outstandingly successful in every regard… flawless performance... a young artist who is destined for the highest rank.’

This new CD, recorded recently in the Music Room at Champs Hill (from where the label takes its name), takes its title from the featured Janáček work.

About the programme, Ivana says: "The Schubert is a core around which I have constructed the programme - I have always felt comfortable playing works of Classical construction, and the A minor Sonata (D784) opens with a Slavic tint which, to me, foretells Mussorgsky. I find it important to create a journey for both the audience, and myself, that shows all the aspects of my musical personality; the introspective and haunting images in Janáček’s ‘In the Mists’ conveys this, while the Rachmaninov pieces add passion and lyricism.”

Also featured on this CD, are Liszt’s stunningly melodic Petrarch Sonnets, bringing the playing time to just over 73 minutes.

Subcollection: Piano

Ivana Gavrić made her debut on Champs Hill Records in 2010, when her playing described as “altogether of an extraordinary calibre” by BBC Music Magazine who also made her Newcomer of the Year in their 2011 BBC Music Magazine Awards.
Her second recording brings together works written between 1905 and 1912, by composers separated by nationality; but linked together in possibly the most exciting period in modern European culture.
Completing her survey of Janáček’s major solo piano works, Ivana puts On an overgrown path and the Sonata, 1. X. 1905 in the context of Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales and Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 2.
Ivana writes “Ever since my student years, the Ballets Russes have greatly fascinated me, in particular Prokofiev’s involvement with Diaghilev and the company. His second Sonata is a real statement by a young composer who has just formulated his style, full of his trademark soaring melodies and occasional sarcastic gestures.”
At a similar time and as if in another world, Janáček was finding his unique style at his own pace. He uses Moravian folk melodies first in the opening numbers of the Path, and more confidently in the Sonata. His harmonies and textures develop, becoming far more daring and introverted in the later-composed and more obscure numbers of the Path. Like Prokofiev, melody was key for Janáček, although in a more fractured, febrile state.
“ I have always been drawn to the brash, brass-like chords at the start of Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales” adds Ivana. “They open the work with such a rude gesture, later melting into more sensuous and quirky takes on the waltz which end in an epilogue: a hazy recollection of ʻthe night before’.”

MUSICA SLAVICA - Neva KRYSTEVA, organ

MUSICA SLAVICA - Neva KRYSTEVA, organ
ID: GD225
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Organ Collection
Subcollection: Organ

The works included in this release form a brief anthology of organ music by Slavic composers. While the organ was quick to establish its overall presence in the Catholic and Protestant liturgical tradition, East Orthodox music rejects the use of instruments in general. This explains the presentation of the early epoch of organ music in this programme by Polish and Czech Slavic composers mainly, who, belonging to the Catholic tradition, took part in the historic development of European music, lending some regional characteristics to it. The organ was introduced into the works of other Slavic composers during the 20th century, mainly in secular music. The selection for the present CD was made by Neva Krysteva, who is Professor of Polyphony at the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music, Sofia, a theorist of music, and a composer. Ms. Krysteva has given concerts throughout Europe and Asia. Being a performer of an extensive repertoire, she includes Baroque and Romantic music in her programmes, as well as 20th-century works. A number of compositions have been written especially for her and have been dedicated to her. She is founder of the Bulgarian organ school and many of her students perform throughout the world.
