Melodious and charming, The Cunning Little Vixen is a work rooted in Czech history and folk music; a sentimental journey through the cycles of life.

For Sir Simon Rattle, it’s a deeply personal and emotional work. “It’s the piece that made me want to become an opera conductor… and still one of the pieces that reduces me to tears more easily than any other,” says the LSO’s Music Director.

Recorded with an outstanding cast during semi-staged performances, this recording is the second in an LSO Live series showcasing acclaimed collaborations between Rattle and the celebrated stage director Peter Sellars.

Towering fanfares open Janácek’s Sinfonietta, an ode to the composer’s hometown of Brno in the now Czech Republic. It’s a portrait composed for a national celebration of Slavic culture, with Janácek’s love of musical tradition evident in dancing strings and celebratory brass.

Press reviews

MusicWeb International

I found his [Rattle’s] conducting thoroughly convincing. This, then, is a very fine account of The Cunning Little Vixen. Listening to it for review purposes has been a delight and has made me realise yet again what a humane and witty score it is.
