by Janacek

The return of
Jenufa to the Metropolitan Opera "was a triumph for sopranos Karita Mattila and Deborah Polaski who gave electrifying performances as the title character and her stepmother, Kostelnicka," wrote Mike Silverman in an Associated Press review of January 14, 2003.
The Decca recording of Jenufa with Elisabeth Soderstrom, Wieslav Ochman, Petr Dvoirsky, Eva Randova, and Lucia Popp, conducted by Sir Charles Mackerras, was re-released at on September 10, 2002.

I bought this recording when it first came out and I was very happy with it.

Jenufa recordings at
A recording of Jenufa starring Karita Mattila, with the Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, conducted by Bernard Haitink was released at on December 17, 2002.

Karita "Mattila and Jorma Silvasti are vocally resplendent as the romantic leads, and Mr. Haitink and the Covent Garden orchestra work wonders with Janacek's often brutally impractical orchestration. Every note can be picked out of the meticulously balanced textures, and even the shortest phrases are lovingly shaped."--from an article by Derek Katz in the
New York Times of January 5, 2003.

This recording is "now my top recommendation for Janacek's most popular opera," wrote T. Hashimoto in the San Francisco
Examiner of January 7, 2003.
