Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The cantata 'Opening of the Wells', one of Martinu's most intimate professions of love for his native land, simply cannot be absent from the Supraphon catalog. The composition is inspired by the ancient custom of saying good-bye to the winter and welcoming the spring, when children come to "open" springlets and purify them of deposits of sludge. A "rite of spring", yet one entirely different to that we know from Stravinsky.
