Janacék's Sinfonietta

Karina Canellakis conducts Czech music

The monumental orchestral piece Sinfonietta, with its characteristic brass fanfare, quickly became a success worldwide. It was dedicated to the Czechoslovak Army and Janácek said himself that it was intended to express “contemporary free man, his spiritual beauty and joy, his strength, courage and determination to fight for victory.” The finale is a grand celebration of brass instruments, filled out with additional trumpets.

Janácek and Dvorák were good friends. They also shared a strong interest in folk music. Dvorák had enormous international successes in his lifetime and crowned his career with an appointment as a professor of composition in New York. When he returned home, he immersed himself once again in the folk music he had missed so much in America. Among other things, it inspired him to compose four grandiose symphonic poems inspired by Czech ballads. In The Golden Spinning Wheel, we can follow the magical action through Dvorák’s music.
