Orchestral Suites from the Operas, Vol. 1 Naxos

Composer: Leos Janacek

Arranger: Peter Breiner

Conductor: Peter Breiner

Orchestra: New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

Artist: Vesa-Matti Leppanen

The operas of Leoš Janácek have been gaining their rightful place in major
opera houses the world over. First staged in 1904, Jenufa, a powerful
tragedy set in a Moravian village, launched Janácek's operatic career.
The Excursions of Mr Broucek, which had its première in 1920, is his
most candidly satirical opera, rich in high jinks as the bumptious Prague
publican travels to the Moon and back to the 15th century. Peter Breiner, who
created the compelling orchestral suites heard on this disc, conducts these
world première recordings.

Orchestral Suites from the Operas, Vol.
1 Review

Neither one of these suites will be familiar; both were arranged by the
conductor, Peter Breiner…When I began listening I wasn't certain how well
Breiner would do. I needn't have worried; both suites are wonderfully arranged
and the New Zealand Symphony plays them very well. The recording is rich and
full-blooded, and the notes are satisfactory. Score another triumph for
Naxos. Carl Bauman - American Record Guide
