Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This recording focuses on three of Martinu's song-cycles, and a selection of individual songs from an early period in his life that sheds fascinating light on his enthusiasm for song composition. Songs On One Page and Songs On Two Pages were written during his American exile, both utilizing traditional and folk texts in compact but expressive ways. Set to Japanese lyric poetry, Niponari is one of his most important early compositions, revealing a transition from late-Romanticism to impressionism. Of Volume 2 in this series (8.572310) BBC Music Magazine wrote: 'Some excellent songs here, in radiant performances'.

American Record Guide, November/December 2015
This program of song by Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu includes two cycles on traditional texts, Songs On One Page (1943) and Songs On Two Pages (1944); the cycle Niponari (1912), settings of texts by Japanese lyric poets; Two Songs To Negro Folk Poems (1932) and a selection of songs written from 1910 to 1912. The performances are quite good; Wallingerova has a golden tone and crisp diction, and Koukl plays with warm and clarity. The two are particularly good in 'Stari' from Niponari, a gentle, melancholy piece performed with great sensitivity. The Niponari songs are my favorite part of the recording.
