Notes & Reviews:

Little known outside his native Croatia, Ivo Macek (1914-2002) occupied an important place in 20th c. Yugoslavian musical life as pianist and educator. He composed a small number of solo piano works, all of which can be heard on this world première recording. The Intermezzo is among his most poetic early miniatures, while the expressively wide-ranging Theme and Variations is one of his most inventive pieces. His 1985 Sonata is the most elaborate and imposing of his solo piano works, whereas the 1980 Violin Sonata typifies the increasing sophistication and poise of his later style.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Croatian Ivo Macek (1914-2002) was a concert pianist whose compositional output. Seven of them - six for piano (his entire catalog for the instrument), plus a sonata for violin and piano - are recorded on this nicely played and very-well-recorded release.
