Janacek - Sinfonietta (1926) - Cleveland Orchestra/George Szell - One of Janacek's final works, the colorful and evocative Sinfonietta is also his most popular and serves as a perfect introduction to his style, with references to Slavic music and short motivic cells used to construct longer passages. The performances by Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra are classics, with perfectly judged tempi and lively, technically accomplished playing. If I am to compare Szell's and Davis' renditions of these works with Sir Charles Mackerras marvelous performances with the Vienna Philharmonic under London Decca (which I will by the way) then it is Mackerras who clearly has the upper hand.

Taras Bulba is a rhapsody for orchestra by the Czech composer Leoš Janáček. It was composed between 1915 and 1918 and is one of the most famous of Janáček's works. It is based on the novel by Nikolai Gogol. The first version of the work was finished on 2 July 1915, but Janáček later revised it and made substantial changes. The second, almost complete, version was finished on 29 March 1918. Taras Bulba was premiered at the National Theatre in Brno on 9 October 1921, conducted by František Neumann
