Notes & Reviews:

The operatic world of Martinu is the stage for a whole glorious gallery of original ways and means, compositional and technical alike, as well as pioneering novel interactions with such quintessential 20th-century media as were radio, film and television. In all those senses, it ranks among the most exciting chapters of the history of musical drama.
