Not only does this collection of orchestral works by Janáček follow two highly praised volumes with such great soloists as Jean-Efflam Bavouzet and James Ehnes, but it also features one of the composer’s most monumental works – with the vividly admired organist Thomas Trotter – along with three contrasting shorter pieces.

The Glagolitic Mass is considered his finest non-operatic work. It was premiered a year after the Sinfonietta – recorded in Volume 1 [CHSA5142] – to critical acclaim. This impressive piece makes full use of the orchestra and chorus, with virtuosic solo parts for tenor and soprano, as well as organ. It is set within a frame of purely orchestral movements in which the Bergen Orchestra and its new Chief Conductor, Edward Gardner, demonstrate with authority their deep empathy with the repertoire.

The album is completed by three highly diverse characteristic works: the mournful Adagio, the Slavonic Otče náš and the deeply personal Zdrávas Maria.

Leoš Janáček: Our Father (The Lord's Prayer), JW IV/29

Otce náš (Vater unser, Our Father)

Bud vule tvá (Dein Wille geschehe, Thy will be done)

Chléb náš vezdejší dej nám dnes (Unser täglich Brot gib uns heute, Give us this day our daily bread)

A odpust nám naše viny (Und vergib uns unsre Schuld, And forgive us our trespasses)

Neuvod nás v pokušení (Führe uns nicht in Versuchung, And lead us not into temptation)

The Guardian

“Gardner steers the clash of brass, strings, chorus and soloists with confidence, the instrumental outer movements ablaze with excitement, the whole well balanced but still dangerous and invigorating.”
