101 Best

Janacek: Jenufa, Makropulous Affair, Cunning Little Vixen
Elisabeth Söderström, Eva Randova, Marie Mrazova, Peter Dvorsky, Wieslaw Ochman, Lucia Popp, Dalibor Jedlicka
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
Sir Charles Mackerras, conductor

In fact, the entire series of Janacek operas under the baton of Mackerras deserve inclusion, for the dedication and conviction which find expression in the singing and playing, for the work done on cleaning up the scores so that we are closer to the composer's intentions than the well-meaning emendations carried out in an earlier era. One should not, however, be afraid of listening to the earlier recordings for such interpretations as Marta Krasova's Kostelnicka or the contributions of Beno Blachut in a variety of tenorial assignments.
