Vintage Martinu
Jolly Roger | 02/17/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I consider Martinu one of the greatest composer of the recent century.
That said, I think this CD is a great introduction to the composer,the music is delicious, ingenious and the performances could not be better. The works span a large part of his life.
This is one of my favorite CD's."
Excellent. Marvellous music in first-rate performances

"This 2-CD set has first-rate interpretations of Martinu's 5 Piano Concertos and the 1938 Concertino. For why I think so, see my review of the Naxos CD with his Piano Concertos Nos 3 & 5, & the 1938 Concertino by the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra under Arthur Fagen, Giorgio Koukl on piano.

You might also want to consider Bohuslav Martinu: Piano Concertos Nos. 2, 3 & 4 with Rudolf Firkusny on piano and Libor Pesek conducting the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.

Still, for a complete set of these concertos this 2-CD album with Belohlavek conducting and Leichner on piano is unsurpassed. You can't go wrong with this collection of these brilliant works!"
