If you ever wanted to know, where “Emerson, Lake & Palmer” took the melody of their “Knife Edge” from…
Apparently Janacek never composed a classical symphony. “Taras Bulba” is a kind of symphonic folk-epic in three movements, a dramatic program piece based on scenes from Gogol’s novella of the same title. The historic Taras Bulba, depicted factually by Gogol, was a Cossack nationalist, a hero in the rebellion against the Poles. Janacek was something of a pan-Slavic nationalist himself, with a lifelong reverence for Russia; his “Taras Bulba” was composed to memorialize the massacre of Russians in World War 1. The “Sinfonietta” was also conceived as a tribute to heroic soldiers, specifically the Czech Armed Forces, to whom it was dedicated. It began as a trumpet fanfare for a Sokol gymnastic festival in 1926; the trumpets ring out boldly in all five movements.
