Work Introduction

Pohádka (Fairy Tale) was originally a chamber work for cello and piano written by Janáček in 1910 and reworked twice later on in 1912 and 1923. It is now available in a version for solo cello and ensemble by Dutch conductor, pianist and composer Reinbert de Leeuw. Pohádka is based on the epic poem by Russian author Vasily Zhukovsky (The Tale of Tsar Berendey) and reflects Janáček’s interest in Russian culture. Janáček’s work consists of three movements which explore the mood of the fairy tale with tender lyricism.
