Lada Valesova Banner

I was particularly enchanted by her choice of the set of five pieces by Suk, Spring, Op 22a, and Janacek’s In the Mist. The latter are among the most adventurous in the whole literature, and still sound, nearly 100 years later, extraordinarily striking and original; Valesova dramatised their spare, stark beauty in playing that was utterly idiomatic and authoritative.
