Leoš Janáček

Janáček was a composer, folklorist, musical theorist, teacher, and publicist, inspired by Moravian and other Slavic music to create a modern musical style. He devoted himself to folkloristic research until 1895. Janáček’s early musical works were influenced by his contemporaries such as Antonín Dvořák, however, his later works incorporated his research of national folk music in a modern and original synthesis, such as in the opera Jenůfa (1904). Janáček is considered one of the most important of the Czech composers

  1. I was waiting for a subway train the other day & I heard Janáček’s Sinfonietta, the last part. It was so cool! I know I was the only person on the platform who recognized it.
