Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Janacek's choral works contain many little-known masterpieces (Wolf Tracks, the Nursery Rhymes and the Hradcany songs being in particular noteworthy), though it is, I suppose, fair to say that his male choruses have a more specialist appeal. At least these works have survived at the very fringes of the repertoire - a vast amount of music for male chorus was written in the 19th and early 20th century, and many great composers contributed to the genre, but the music is for the most part completely forgotten at present (at least in Western Europe) - and they are remarkable enough that one cannot quite afford to overlook them. Janacek's inimitable fingerprints are all over these pieces, in their unusual rhythms, and speech-derived melodic shapes; forward-looking harmonies are everywhere, and the music is in fact often even more experimental than in many of his better-known works.

Still, there is quite a bit to digest here, and I don't think it is advisable to take more than one or two pieces in one setting. Partially this may be a result of the performances - although the Prague Philharmonic Choir under Josef Veselka display deep understanding of the idiom, their energy and power and even bluster strike me as jeopardizing the subtlety and refinement of textures I often suspect is supposed to be there (I do not really know many alternative recordings, though). The recording is also on the dry side. Still, these are very special works, and at least if you are fascinated by Janacek's music in general you need to acquaint yourself with them.
