This little march was composed in 1924 as part of Janacek’s suite for wind instruments Mládí (HN 1093/7093), in which the jaunty flute theme weaves through the 3rd movement.

Incidentally, the “bluebirds” do not refer to birds but to the light blue robes worn by the choristers at the monastery in Brno, which Janácek entered at the age of eleven. Almost 60 years later during a visit to Potsdam, he remembered the Prussian troops’ invasion of Brno and, with this in mind, wrote a chamber music miniature with a military element. Our Janácek edition by Jirí Zahrádka, a specialist on the life and work of the great Czech composer, contains top-quality Urtext as well as detailed information on the work’s genesis and transmission.

Composer-Leos Janacek

Czech composer, Leoš Janáček, (1854-1928) is considered to be one of the greatest 20th-century operatic composers. He also wrote a number of works including choral, chamber, instrumental and orchestral works amongst other pieces.

From 1881-1888, he directed the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and became a professor of composition at the Prague Conservatory in 1919.

He was deeply inspired by folk music. Some of his later works were influenced by French impressionistic composers, but he always maintained his own unique Czech style of composition.
