Notes & Reviews:

Martinu's piano oeuvre comprises more than 200 compositions (some of which were dedicated to the outstanding pianists R. Firkusny and R. Serkin) and has duly been paid great attention to. However, a number of fascinating miniatures have remained overlooked by performers, with some of them being presented for the very first time on this CD. The minor pieces, often arranged into tiny cycles, are most notable for their playful atmosphere and rhythmic inventiveness.
