Leoš Janáček

Leoš Janáček (1854-1928)


The son of a Moravian schoolmaster, Janáček studied in Leipzig and Brno, where he started his working life as a music-teacher and choral conductor. From his mid-thrities, composition assumed an increasing prominence in his life, alongside musicology, and he played a central role in the revival and documentation of Moravian and Silesian folk music.
