The works for solo piano by Leos Janacek (1854–1928) are not great in number, however, they play a significant role in his oeuvre, forming one of the pillars of piano literature of the 20th century.
After the piano cycle “In the Mists” – which might be described as the composer’s intimate confession of his spiritual state – and the sonata “1.X.1905”, the Bärenreiter Urtext series, in coproduction with Editio Bärenreiter Praha , is publishing what is possibly Janacek’s most popular piano work, the cycle of commemorative miniatures “On an Overgrown Path”.
