He ranks amongst the greatest European composers of the 20th century. Yet, his path to recognition and fame was far from easy. Two musicologists Jiří Zahrádka and Miloš Štědroň will guide us through his life, but above all through his best works. Singer and violinist Iva Bittová and pianist Jan Jiraský will comment on Czech as well as great foreign performances. Of foreign guests, they will be joined by conductors Donald Runnicles and Simon Rattle and directors and experts on Janáček's work Brian Large and Reiner Moritz.
