About
“One of the best European pianists” Il Roma

Though a relatively small oeuvre, Janáček’s piano works are fascinating pieces, capable of transporting audiences to the composer’s Moravian sound world and at the same time reaching down an emotional labyrinth deep in his heart.

One of the foremost specialists of Janáček’s piano music, Czech pianist Jan Bartoš earned international critical acclaim with his 2019 solo album, including the Gramophone Editor’s Choice and being listed in the Top 10 Classical Albums by NPR and Europadisc. 

Highlights of Bartoš’s recital include three signature works of Janáček’s. In the collection On an Overgrown Path, Janáček juxtaposed fond memories of his hometown with an outpouring of sadness due to his daughter’s premature death. While the piano sonata I.X.1905 represented the composer’s response to a death in a political riot, the piano cycle In the Mists aspired to an abstract approach with strong psychological undertones.
