Bea. Faltus, Leos / Kucerova, Marie / Stedron, Milos \| Preface: Czech, German, English, French and Russian

Janacek's first cantata Amarus for soprano and tenor solo, mixed chorus and orchestra was written to the words of Jaroslav Vrchlicky, in whose text Janacek found traces of his own fate. Amarus reflects the composeros relatively unhappy youth. The composer completed the work in 1897 and it was first performed three years later. In the context of Janacekos work the lyrical cantata Amarus is the work of quest, a composition, which represents the climax of the composeros first romantic period. Years later when the composer recalled this opus work, he said: Amarus? The Kingos Monastery in Stary Brno, its gloomy corridors, old church, extensive gardens, my poor, adolescence life spent in it, the loneliness and nostalgia, all that came so close to Amarus . The desires of youth discovered Vrchlicky's words. Both youth and spring discovered its way here. The critical edition of the score appears as the first volume of the B cantata series of Leos Janacek's collected works. The piano score based on this score had been published earlier.
