Leoš Janáček

“With 63 years, Leoš Janáček met Kamila Stösslová, … who was to inspire him for the remaining years of his life. He conducted an obsessive and (on his side at least) passionate correspondence with her, of nearly 730 letters. From 1917 to 1919, deeply inspired by Stösslová, he composed The Diary of One Who Disappeared.
As he completed its final revision, he began his next ‘Kamila’ work, the opera
Káťa Kabanová.”
