To Michael Cookson. I enjoyed reading your Belohlavek Janacek review. You mention Kubelik as your 'go to' performances of these works. Mine have always been Karel Ancerl. His Sinfonietta on Supraphon is visceral and Ancerl brings out all of the brass voices. Ancerl's Glagolitic Mass is also stunning. I love Kubelik's work but I find his Janacek a little too well-mannered, if you like, perhaps because he was using a German orchestra. Have you heard them? If not, you simply must.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
