Bavouzet; Bergen Philarmonic Orchestra; Gardner
Composed by: Janacek, Leos
Conductor Edward Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic here commence their series devoted to Leoš Janáček’s orchestral works. This opening salvo features three works from Janáček’s late, great period: The Sinfonietta, one of the composer’s most successful and popular works; the Capriccio, with pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet taking on the left-hand solo part, and, restored to its original, striking orchestration by Sir Charles Mackerras, the suite of instrumental interludes from Janáček’s 1923 opera ‘The Cunning Little Vixen’.
