Notes & Reviews:

The compositions by Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959) presented on this CD originated between 1937 and 1950. Although 'Concerto grosso' was written in Paris (1937), all of them were premiered in the United States, where the composer fled to escape the war. The extraordinary success of the Boston premiere of 'Concerto grosso' opened the doors for the author and brought him further commissions and offers. Here Martinu was inspired by Baroque musical forms and techniques, while Sinfonietta 'La Jolla' can be considered his farewell to Neo-Classicism. The common denominator of the three pieces is the use of piano in the role of an orchestral rather than concertante instrument.
