Janacek: Glagolitic Mass & Sinfonietta

City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra Chorus; City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra; Felicity Palmer; Ameral Gunson; John Mitchinson; Malcolm King; Jane Parker-Smith; Sir Simon Rattle, conductor


What they say

"Simon Rattle's early 1980s EMI Classics recordings of two of Janacek's most popular works - the Sinfonietta, premiered in Prague in 1926, and the Glagolitic Mass, heard the same year in both Prague and Brno - have established themselves firmly in the catalogue.

"The performance of the Glagolitic Mass (with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra) has Gramophone's recommendation as the 'version to buy' and the brilliantly played version of the Sinfonietta (with the Philharmonia Orchestra) holds its own against any rivals.

"The Mass is given a masterful performance under Rattle's inspired leadership. The Sinfonietta is brilliantly played."
