Description

This Urtext edition of Janácek's works includes lesser-known piano pieces and miniatures from his late years. They complete our picture of Janácek the piano composer, best known for the cycles "On an Overgrown Path" and "In the Mists". The late miniatures, entered in the album of Kamila Stösslová, reveal his compositional style at its most concise.The editor Ondrej Pivoda, the curator of the Moravian State Museum in Brno, has taken the autograph manuscripts as his principal sources while consulting other accessible sources, such as historical editions and copyist's manuscripts. This series of piano miniatures appears for the first time in a scholarly-critical edition.
