Janacek: Taras Bulba (Naxos: 8.572695)

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Leos Janacek was an authority on his native folk-music, and the Lachian and Moravian Dances preserve and celebrate culture and traditions which were vanishing even in his own lifetime. Based on Gogol's historical novel, Janacek's inspired orchestral rhapsody on Taras Bulba depicts three moving and dramatic episodes in the violent life of the Cossack leader, climaxing in his stirring and triumphant prophecy of liberation. This release follows Antoni Wit's acclaimed Warsaw recording of Janacek's Glagolitic Mass and Sinfonietta (8.572639).

This release follows hot on the heels of Antoni Wit's recording of Janacek's Glagolitic Mass (8.572639 and Blu-ray Audio NBD0026), which was described as"gripping from start to finish" by Gramophone and"a major release - a mandatory purchase" in a 10/10 review from With its mixture of the powerfully emotive Taras Bulba and more pastoral Dances, and the Warsaw Philharmonic's proven track record in Janacek's remarkable scores, this release will generate its own substantial following.

Antoni Wit, one of the most highly regarded Polish conductors, studied conducting with Henryk Czyz and composition with Krzysztof Penderecki at the Academy of Music in Krakow, subsequently continuing his studies with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. In 2002 he became managing and artistic director of the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.
