BBC Proms 2004

Janacek's magnificent Sinfonietta – sonic snapshots of famous landmarks in his adopted home town of Brno – opens this all-Czech programme in which the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus are joined by their Czech-born former Principal Guest Conductor.

Commissioned for the Birmingham Festival of 1885 (and later conducted by Janacek in Brno), Dvorak's once-popular, but now rarely-performed, oratorio retells a grisly legend of a love that reaches out from beyond the grave.
