Amarus' for solo voices (tenor and soprano), mixed choir and orchestra is Janacek's first great cantata. It was finished more than one hundred years ago in 1897. This composition is characteristic of Janacek who found in the text by Jaroslav Vrchlicky a parallel to his own fate. Cantata 'Amarus' personifies Janacek's painful yearning for happiness and bliss of life.
