Notes & Reviews:

Nadia Boulanger wrote, "One could not become close to Martinu; without loving him, so radiant was the purity of his personality. This personality illumines all his music." These works for cello date from the last twenty years of his life, 1939-1959. The first two sonatas and the Rossini variations were written in the years 1939-1942, a tumultuous period in which Martinu was blacklisted by the Nazis and went to live in exile in the United States during the war. Cellist Karine Georgian, who was a protege of Mstislav Rostropovich, was described by the Boston Globe as having "a musical mind that is passionate, inventive, spontaneous, yet carefully reasoned and serenely assured."
