Notes & Reviews:

Three orchestral works by Czech modernist composer Bohuslav Martinu, given a rave Three-Star review by the Penguin Guide upon initial release and available on budget CD for the first time. Conducted by Sir Charles Mackerras and Peter Maag, these pieces feature pianist Jiri Skovajsa (Double Concerto), pianist Dennis Hennig (Sinfonietta), and violist Rivka Golani (Rhapsody-Concerto).

Penguin Guide
Golani's unaffected account of the Rhapsody-Concerto [is] all the more eloquent for being understated... The lovely Sinfonietta, a wartime work but apparently carefree, gets a delightfully fresh performance... The powerful Double Concerto, again well played and recorded.
