Notes & Reviews:

Martinu composed his Revue de Cuisine spontaneously during a stay in Paris. Both jazz and humor reflect his enthusiasm for modern popular music. This piece was premiered as a Ballet of Kitchen Gadgets in Prague, where it was not well received explaining his immediate return to Paris. Four Madrigals is written for wind trio of bassoon, oboe & clarinet. This is Martinu's take on English Madrigals, a favorite of his. The Nonet was one of Martinu's last compositions. It dates from 1959 and was composed in Switzerland. This piece does show Martinu's preoccupation with the symphonic form.

BBC Music Magazine
Supported by a warmly resonant recording the Ensemble Villa Musica performs all these works with consummate brilliance. Their rendition of the Nonet is particularly distinguished, projecting great rhythmic incisiveness and clarity of texture in the opening Poco Allegro and a real sense of mystery in the ensuing Andante.
