Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Jiri Belohlavek is a world-renowned conductor of the works of Bohuslav Martinu, including the symphonic, operatic, oratorio and cantata literature. Martinu's oratorio The Epic of Gilgamesh (1955) is unusual and, in a way, unique in all the international literature, as exciting and mysterious as the ancient tale on which it is based.
