Martinu: Symphonies Nos 2 & 4 / Fagen, NSO of Ukraine

Album Summary

>Martinu, Bohuslav : Symphony no 2
>Martinu, Bohuslav : Symphony no 4
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Forced to flee his homeland after the annexation of Czechoslovakia in 1939, Martinu settled initially in the United States where he wrote all six of his symphonies. These are among his most impressive and widely recorded achievements, combining driving energy and rhythmic flexibility with spontaneous melodies drawn from Czech folk songs. The two symphonies on this disc are predominantly lyrical works, yet highly contrasted. This great music is given superb performances.
