Notes & Reviews:

In 1973, together with the conductor Georg Solti, Josef Suk premiered Martinu's first violin concerto in Chicago. This "Paris-era" concerto was originally written for the famous violinist Samuel Dushkin. However, it was later mislaid, only to be rediscovered and premiered some 40 years later. Josef Suk was a sound choice for the concerto's second life; his 1973 recording with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra (together with Martinu's second, "American", violin concerto) won great accolades, including the Grand Prix du disque de l'Academie Charles Cros.
