Most of Czech composer Leoš Janáček’s music for solo Piano was produced during the relatively short period between 1900 and 1912. This was a period in which Janáček suffered the death of his second child, and had to come to terms with multiple rejections from the Prague music scene, which denied the composer and his distinctive musical language the opportunity to participate in international musical developments until 1916, when his work finally managed to gain international recognition.

In the Mists was composed during this period of great difficulty and despair in a house in the garden of the Brno Organ School, hidden from the eyes of the world, with a broken self confidence and a mind in a state of melancholy.

Influenced by Debussy’s impressionism, In the Mists is one of the most remarkable works in 20th-century Piano literature, said to be 20 years ahead of its time. In the Bärenreiter Urtext edition Janáček’s cycle is presented in the form that can be found in the Complete Critical Edition of the Works of Leoš Janáček. A preface by Jiří Zahrádka is also included in Czech, English and German.

Because of the virtuoso nature of Janáček’s work, it is more challenging and less accessible, but extremely rewarding when mastered.

Rating Review
Customer Rating Well produced book, very clearly printed; at 24.4cm a bit wider than average. Fingering is a bit sparse, but I haven't tried it yet to see how helpful it is. The time signature, or at least the number of crotchet beats in the bar, is written over the top of the stave at each change, but really the bar lines are irrelevant. There's a 4-page preface about the work, repeated in German and Czech, so only 20pp. of actual music. Possibly a bit expensive at £12, not the cheapest version avialable, but looks classy.
