Towering fanfares open Janáček’s Sinfonietta, an ode to the composer’s hometown of Brno in the now Czech Republic. It’s a portrait composed for a national celebration of Slavic culture, with Janáček’s love of musical tradition evident in dancing strings and celebratory brass. Szymanowski’s First Violin Concerto accompanies – performed by Janine Jansen, renowned for her interpretations of the piece – a delicate work inspired by Ravel and Debussy and the ethereal goddesses of Tadeusz Miciński’s poetry.
