Über diesen Titel


Zdenka Janácková's memoirs were considered too personal for publication at the time of her death in1937. She tells the tale of her extraordinary life with Janácek, from her years as his young piano pupil (when the composer was 23) to his sudden death at the age of 74. Her story provides a first-hand - and not always flattering - account of Janácek's day-to-day life. Its many dramatic revelations include an account of his tempestuous affair with the singer Gabriela Horvátová, Zdenka's subsequent suicide attempt and her strange 'divorce' from her husband (they continued to live together until his death). Among other striking passages are her harrowing description of the long illness and painful death of their daughter Olga and a forthright account of Janácek's increasing infatuation during his late years with his 'muse' Kamila Stösslová and of the events surrounding his death.

Zdenka's compelling and startlingly frank story is a moving document in its own right, written unashamedly to set the record straight and it paints a fascinating picture of the changing times during which the composer lived with its woman-in-the street's perspective of the First World War and the break-up of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
