Recording from Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin
Jenůfa is about misplaced feelings. It is the third opera written by Janáček and at the same time the first to achieve success. The Moravian-born composer was a folklore lover and expert in that field. In Jenůfa we can clearly hear echoes of his explorations and folklore research.
