Marek Janowski

In his bundled essays Testaments Betrayed  (les Testaments trahis,') Czech writer Milan Kundera devotes ample attention to his compatriot, composer Leos Janacek.  What begins as the report of a search for recordings of the latter's music, culminates in a dissertion on the cultural nationalism of 'small nations'. Kundera describes the unique position held by Janacek in the history of European music.

Janacek

Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin

    Gramophone

"Janowski takes an altogether gentler view of the work compared to the ebullient energy of Kubelik and in particular Mackerras...Not suprisingly, Janowski is at his most effective in the 'Agnece Bozij' (Agnus Dei); this is gracefully done. The extraordinary organ solo is well played." (July 2013)

    American Record Guide

"Janacek's signature dotted rhythms are somewhat rounded, smoothing out the usual angularity in this music. The strings play with a beautiful warm tone as opposed to the silvery glint of the Czech orchestras. The recording follows suit, with its warm tone" (September/ October 2013)

    BBC Music Magazine

"A lean, cleanly contoured Glagolitic, lacking the elemental charge and raw abandon of some versions. Taras Bulba is generally well played, if again short on real cutting edge and excitement.'' (April 2013)
