Piano music occupies a small, but nevertheless musically important place in Leos Janácek's oeuvre. This Henle Urtext Edition of the composer's In The Mists by the seasoned Janácek editor Jirí Zahrádka is an impressive example of this. This small cycle was composed in 1912 and was published for the first time the following year. But as was so often the case, Janácek was prompted to revise it. Following the first performance of the work in Prague by the pianist Stepán Václav in December 1922, the composer and interpreter jointly undertook a revision, which was published in 1924.
Henle is now publishing this definitive version in an Urtext edition, which also provides convincing solutions for practical questions, such as how to deal with inconsistent pedal markings by Václav and Janácek.
