Why do I go into the dark, frozen cells of criminals with the poet of Crime and Punishment? Into the minds of criminals and there I find a spark of God. You will not wipe away the crimes from their brow, but equally you will not extinguish the spark of God. Into what depths it leads - how much truth there is in his work!

See how the old man slides down from the oven, shuffles to the corpse, makes the sign of the cross over it, and with a rusty voice sobs the words: ‘A mother gave birth even to him!’

Those are the bright places in the house of the dead.

Leoš Janáček: ‘On the way to the House of the Dead’

(this passage was found in the composer’s clothes after his death)

So my orchestra got some sort of grant to play pretty much nothing but Czech music?
