Description: Czech music collectors will welcome this new recording of the engrossing preludes by Kabelác which were written between 1954-56. They seem to describe psychological states (meditativo, sognante, impetuoso) as well as more abstract ones (notturno, volante, etc.) and, lasting 27 minutes, add a valuable and very attractive work to the CD catalogue. The Janácek first recordings are student works from 1879-80, three of what were originally 14, these having been preserved in a big collection of fugues by a Cistercian abbot in southern Austria. Ivo Kahánek (piano).
