Catalogue Number: 10R036
Description: Yes, Czech string players circa 1926 still used gut strings and this makes a significant difference in the Sinfonietta but the massed brass is the most outstanding of the new sounds you’ll hear in this well-known work. But the arsenal of period brass instruments is the most impressive thing about the Janáček and guarantees that you will hear this work in a way you’ve never done before. This may be the best thing Anima Eterna has done yet. Anima Eterna Brugge; Jos van Immerseel.
