An important part of Janáček’s creative legacy is his writing about music. This amounts to an extensive body, significant in content of his personal ideas and critical observations, and his immediate reactions to social and cultural events, and to the national and societal problems of his era and the environment in which he lived and worked. His first compositions and his first literary contributions together marked Janáček’s emergence into public life. They poured forth almost without interruption between 1875 and 1928, and closely illustrate his life, public work, and art. They represent an important source of information on his intellectual and artistic development, his creative struggles, and his battles for recognition of his work as a composer. They are not of a merely random nature, but form a permanent part of his personal and artistic legacy.
The collection so far assembled of Janáček’s literary essays, reports and reviews, articles and feuilletons, studies, and books about music comprise around 380 individual contributions; 310 of these were published during his lifetime. The remainder consists of complete and incomplete manuscripts, abstracts, syllabi, lecture notes, and other significant fragments.
