  Leos Janacek
He largely abandoned the number opera, integrated folksong firmly into his music and formulated a theory of 'speech-melody', based on the natural rhythms and the rise and fall of the Czech language, which was to influence all his ensuing works and give them a particular colour through their jagged rhythms and lines.
Janacek's reputation outside Czechoslovakia and German-speaking countries was first made as an instrumental composer.
He has since come to be regarded not only as a Czech composer worthy to be ranked with Smetana and Dvorak, but also as one of the most substantial and original opera composers of the 20th century.

From his youth, Leos Janacek was very active as a conductor, a promoter, and a teacher.
Janacek went beyond modality and the free connection of thirds and fourths, which are otherwise the basis of his melodic-harmonic speech, in his Glagolithic Mass, Capriccio, and the operas Vec Makropulos (The Makropulos Case) and Z mrtveho domu (From the House of the Dead).
Janacek's personal contribution to European musical culture was so new that it was not fully appreciated for a long time.

 Leos Janacek
It was not until the last decade of his life that Janacek achieved fame and international recognition as a composer (better late than never, eh?).
This was due largely to the performance of his opera Jenufa, given at the Court Opera in Vienna in 1918.
Janacek, whose operas were often based on current events, in one case, The Makropolis Affair on legal proceedings, were he alive today, could have updated the tale.

 In praise of ... Leos Janacek | The Guardian | Guardian Unlimited
It is the perfect introduction, because audiences used to theatre and film (and wary of wilting sopranos dying interminably over three acts) will embrace the concision and tautness of Leos Janacek's drama, not to mention the complicated, fully drawn women characters at the heart of the piece.
Janacek presents an inspiring example to late developers.
The Czech composer had scarcely any experience of opera until his 30s, and, until he began to concentrate on composing in his 50s, his career was devoted to teaching.

Written in 1887-1888, Janacek was more than proud of the work when he completed the piano score of it and in Alena Nemcova's well-written notes accompaning this CD, Janacek felt further encouraged after discussing the score with Antonin Dvorak.
But, somehow I wish that Janacek had written a longer opera, for the story itself offers amble opportunities for theatrical presentations in huge scales and proportions as Fibich admirably proved: it could easily have been a grand opera in the vein of Gounod and Massenet.
But more importantly, for me at least, Janacek's Sarka have plenty of personal fingerprints to be found in his later works and his sense of dramatic impetus and musical incident is admirably established in his early endeavor.

 Leos Janacek: Complete Critical Edition of His Works   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Over the years Janaceks œuvre has increasingly received the recognition it so richly merits, and performances of his works are becoming more and more frequent.
This development is, however, offset by a manuscript tradition so disorderly that some of Janaceks works continue, as before, to be played in versions which are heavily adapted, corrupt, or otherwise contrary to the composer's intentions.
Thus, a critical edition of Janacek's music is indispensable for scholars and performers alike.

Janacek (1854-1928) was fascinated with regional Czech folk dialect and successfully incorporated many of its patterns into his music.
"Intimate Letters" (1928), Janacek's second and final quartet, overflows with the undisguised love that the composer held for Kamila Stosslova, a married woman 38 years his junior, to whom he wrote over 700 letters.
