Serebrier continues to impress fans of Janácek's music, both as conductor and, here, as interpreter. His orchestral distillation of Janácek's opera, The Makropulos Case, brings raves, both as an arrangement and as recorded with the Czech State Philharmonic Orchestra (Brno), Serebrier conducting. He has exactly captured the musical and emotional intent of the composer, laying it expertly in the hands of orchestral forces. Now Universal Edition makes available this important new study score for those fans. Duration: 31'
