Review
`This new, much-needed Janacek catalog, superseding a number of useful if less than comprehensive previous attempts, is a remarkable piece of work and an extraordinary cooperative venture ... The three editors could hardly have been better suited to the task; each has had a very full career dedicated to the life and works of Janacek ... The wealth of information provided will serve scholars and students for years to come ... This comprehensive catalog is a stunning piece of work that succeeds form nearly every point of view. It will stand as a monument to scholarly precision and judgment well into the new millenium.' Jan Smaczny, Queen's University of Belfast June 1999
