Martinu: Complete Music For Violin & Orchestra 4cd
Bohuslav Matoušek (violin) Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Christopher Hogwood
Commissioned or premiered by some of the greatest violinists of the age—Kreisler, Dushkin, Elman—all the usual Martinu virtues are here in abundance, which makes the subsequent neglect of this important body of work even more incomprehensible. A decade after their original release, these recordings remain virtually unchallenged. The works recorded in this set—Martinu’s complete output for solo violin and orchestra, including compositions with other solo instruments.
