Catalogue Number: 12L064

Label: Ondine

Reference: ODE 1158-2

Format: CD

Price: $15.98

Description: Astoundingly, considering the number of Martinu releases that have been rolling out the last two decades, there is no other recording of the second concerto (1934, rev. 1944 and a classic example of the composer's neo-classical style with characteristic Czech intonations) and only a mono historical recording of the fourth (1955 with a dreamily lyrical first movement and a highly dramatic finale). The Overture, from 1953, is in concerto grosso form and refers as directly to Bach's Brandenburgs as directly as Martinu ever did. Robert Kolinsky (piano), Basel Symphony Orchestra; Vladimir Ashkenazy.
