Following the release of their stunning recording of Janáček’s Operatic Orchestral Suites, Vol. 1 (Jenůfa, The Excursions of Mr Brouček) on 8.570555, Peter Breiner conducts his insightful suites from two popular Janáček operas—Káta Kabanová and The Makropulos Affair—with New Zealand Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen again playing a featured role. Czechoslovakian-born Breiner is ideally placed to interpret the music of his innovative compatriot.
