L. Janacek: Youth (Mladi) Arranged For String Quartet (Study Score)

Books | String Quartet

Publisher: Bärenreiter
Composer: Léos Janácek
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

This piece reflects Janácek’s memories of childhood and youth in his native Hukvaldy and the Augustinian Abbey in Brno. Kryštof Maratka, a Czech composer resident in France and a great admirer of Janácek, has arranged the original version to produce a welcome addition to the string quartet repertoire.

Youth for wind sextet, is a masterpiece from Janácek’s late period (1924). Maratka has successfully managed to transform the concise winds’ sound that give this work its unique flavour into the timbre of the strings, thereby creating a “third string quartet” of the composer.
