Notes & Reviews:

The Telegraph
Robert Kolinsky summons a truly heroic tone, and he flings off Martinu's taxing double octaves with real bravura. He also seizes the rare moments when the tumult abates and Martinu does something genuinely subtle.

Gramophone Magazine
Martinu's Les fresques de Piero della Francesca... a score of impressionist colour and intensity... I have not been aware hitherto of Ashkenazy as a Martinu interpreter but he responds to its rich and radiant atmosphere with a reading of real verve. It separates two of the finest Martinu concerto performances to have come my way for some time. Robert Kolinsky... has...the measure of these works technically and emotionally, both the Parisian neo-classical chic of No 2 (1934) and the rawer, elemental power of Incantation (1956). The Basle Symphony Orchestra play superbly. Thoroughly recommended.
