Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to hear this music. So much of it is stunning - and I am referring both to the Janacek and your blog as a whole. Thank you again.

I live these pieces for piano; recommended to everybody...however, do you know who is performing here? I am familiar with the Andras Schiff (on ECM) and the R. Firkusny (sic?) (on DG)...I love both recordings and find them to be very different. Your blog is wonderful! I learn a lot every time I visit. many thanks for your efforts.

hey you :)

the performing pianist should indeed be Rudolf Firkušný. I don't own the original cd of this specific recording, sorry. But that's at least what the track titles say.

thank you for the compliment & take care,
