Leoš Janácek and
Moravian Folk Music

Janácek was born in Hukvaldy, Moravia in 1854 and died in Ostrava in 1928. He was a Czech composer, conductor and organist, whose early works did not meet with much success.

Janácek had an interest in Moravian folk music and he spent time editing and performing them. Some big events in his life included his creation of the Brno Organ School in 1881 and his opera Jenufa, which was performed in Brno in 1904.

Jenufa marked the beginning of Janácek’s individual music style. His striking orchestration often used instruments in their extreme ranges and he was quite innovative in his use of melodic fragments.

Janácek wrote works for operas, orchestra (also chorus and orchestra), chamber music, chorus, piano, and solo voice. He was quite prolific.

An Amazing Janácek Fact

Janácek’s music has, for the most part, a modern twentieth century sound, even though be was born in the mid part of the nineteenth century.
