Format: Audio CD
These are the first Janacek CDs I have purchased. Previously I heard some of the operas and had been only mildly interested in the great Czech. From those earlier experiences I had drawn a certain image of Janacek that these CDs have forced me to reimagine. "On The Overgrown Path" is performed with such simple warmth that it is overwhelming. "Reminiscence", according to the CD jacket, was Janacek's final work. It is an historic half a minute. The two movement sonata - the last movement to which Janacek apparently tore to pieces and hurled into a river - is a wonderful blend of Czech morbidity and intermittent promise. This is an awesome release that any pianophile absolutely must own. I would have given it ten stars if I could.

This is, simply put, one of the best CD sets out there. Janacek truly had a gift for writing piano music, and, equally so, Firkunsky had a gift for interpreting them. Every piece on these discs is a gem, from the peaceful "On the Overgrown Path" to, my personal favorite, the intense and mature "Capriccio", these CDs have no weak points. If you are at all a fan of Moravia's greatest composer, or if you are looking for an introduction to his works, this is a can't miss.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This recording came as a bit of an awakening to me. I am only familiar with the larger orchestral works and initially purchased this disk because I liked some other recordings by Firkusny. ON AN OVERGROWN PATH was a revelation. What I love about Firkusny here, though I have head him be quite passionate--even ferocious--in other recordings, is his utter simplicity and clarity of approach. Nothing is too broad or overly sentimental. The music takes care of the sentiment all by itself. This is also what I love about Gilels's approach to the Grieg LYRIC PIECES, of which these put me in mind: clarity and elegance with no musical hyperbole. The orchestral pieces are equally fine, with Kubelik as a sensitive conductor, but it is the first disk that has captured my heart. This may soon become desert island material for me.

I could live with just this and a little food for a long, long time. Janacek, and this performance in particular, get right to the heart of it.
