In between, the musicians of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra offer something totally different – the raw and unschooled passions of the Czech composer Leoš Janácek.
In Mládí, written as he approached his 70th birthday, the composer set out to celebrate the experience of youth. The buoyant, spirited work captures all the vividness of peasant life and all the unrequited passions of its composer.
Janácek wanted his distinctive musical rhythms to match those of Czech speech. The result is music that sounds like nothing else, seeped in vivid originality and striking colours.
