Notes & Reviews:

The sextuplet of Martinu symphonies originated within a very short time frame ('Symphonies Nos. 1-5' within a mere five years - from 1942 to 1946 in the USA; 'Symphony No. 6', designated 'Fantaisies symphoniques', was completed in 1953) at a time when the composer enjoyed general acclaim and was bursting with creative energy. It was as if only on a new continent, where he was driven by war and was warmly welcomed, could Martinu muster up the courage to plunge into this classical form and seek to catch up on what he had "missed out on" until then. Following in the footsteps of a number of leading Czech conductors, the demanding task was this time undertaken by the seasoned Vladimir Valek with the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra.
