Leoš Janáček was an authority on his native folk-music, and the Lachian and Moravian Dances preserve and celebrate culture and traditions which were vanishing even in his own lifetime. Based on Gogol’s historical novel, Janáček’s inspired orchestral rhapsody on Taras Bulba depicts three moving and dramatic episodes in the violent life of the Cossack leader, climaxing in his stirring and triumphant prophecy of liberation. This release follows Antoni Wit’s acclaimed Warsaw recording of Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass and Sinfonietta (8.572639).

Review By John Warrack ,Gramophone,August 2012

Here we have Lachian and Moravian dances…all played with evident exhilaration by a Polish conductor and orchestra. The sound in general is warm and vivid, and Antoni Wit has a sure hand with all Janácek’s demands.

Review By Donald R Vroon,American Record Guide,July 2012

…I am very happy with the Lachian Dances here. I like Serebrier on Reference (gorgeous sound) and Albrecht on Orfeo (sound and interpretation very lively), but I think Wit is slightly better than either. Wit’s violins sound Czech—sound the way violins should sound in Dvorák and Janácek. The others don’t cultivate that wild, almost manic sound; they are better behaved and blend normally. © 2012 American Record Guide
