Notes & Reviews:

Chamber music, from duos to ensembles of up to nine instruments, occupies a significant place in the vast output of Bohuslav Martinu. There are few chamber formations whose possibilities he did not try out. Martinu's piano quintets and piano quartet, instrumental formations that were favorites of 19th-century composers, incorporate his decidedly post-Romantic sensibility with striking and idiomatic writing. Surprisingly, until now, these three works have never been combined on a single disc.
