Here's a recent performance by yours truly and fantastic pianist Érico Freire Bezerra of Janáček's magical Pohadka (Fairy Tale) for cello and piano. Full of imaginative instrumental effects, atmospheric sonorities, and soaring melodies, it's one of the gems of the cello and piano literature. In particular, the climax of the 2nd movement, with the cello reaching into its very highest register, is a truly stunning passage: https://youtu.be/8tOZvcBgnbA

Indeed, easily one of my favourite Janacek pieces. Very nice.

JBS:
I am looking to get recordings of The Cunning Little Vixen and The Excursions of Mr Broucek. Presto's opera sale gives the following options and I'd welcome suggestions about which to get.

I admit the last one there is attractive solely for the presence of Wunderlich and Keilberth.

Rattle must like this opera a lot: besides these two recordings, he also recorded it for EMI, but Presto isn't listing it.
