Martinu’s mature orchestral works are now a mainstay of the repertoire. But the generous quantity of orchestral music he wrote between his late teens and early thirties is as good as unknown. This series of albums opens that treasure trove, revealing Martinu on the path to mastery. It presents first recordings of some astonishingly attractive music, much of it showing the good-natured influence of Czech folk traditions, some of it evocative and atmospheric – and almost all of it irresistibly charming. 

"... Performances and conducting are able, with evident sympathy for the music..."
