Leoš Janáček

Although born 3 July 1854 (at Hukvaldy), Leoš Janáček needs to be regarded as an early 20th century composer because his mature music was both powerful and forward-looking. It transcended his Czech origin. His operas are especially noteworthy and a century later remain an essential component in the development of modern opera. He died in Ostrava on 12 August 1928.
