Introduction

Violinist Christian Tetzlaff, Antonín Dvořák's Violin Concerto and the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra are old acquaintances. Tetzlaff and HPO’s 2016 recording of the concert garnered five-star reviews worldwide. It is then high time to meet again and catch up with this particular concerto!

Czech composer Leoš Janáček was fascinated and inspired by the folk songs of his own province, Moravia. He collected and studied them, drawing material from them for his compositions. Janáček was convinced that the moods found in folk music and their free rhythmic patterns stem from the Czech language, its cadence and words.

Composed in 1926 and orchestrated for a giant orchestra, the Sinfonietta begins and ends with handsome fanfares by nine trumpets, two bass trumpets, two tenor tubas and timpani. The composer wanted them to be played in the ragged style of a military band rather than the sophisticated refined style of a symphony orchestra.
