Album Summary

>Martinu, Bohuslav : Stín (The Shadow), ballet, H. 102
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Martinu's mature orchestral works are now a mainstay of the repertoire. But the generous quantity of orchestral music he wrote between his late teens and early thirties is as good as unknown; some of it, indeed, has never even been performed. That's the case with the ballet Stn ('The Shadow') from 1916, which has its world premiere in this recording - astonishingly, in view of the quality of the music it contains. Although the action of the ballet is dark - a girl dances with her shadow in the presence of Death - Martinu's score presents a series of remarkably buoyant and cheery dances.
