Martinu was an immensely prolific and varied composer with an impressive list of orchestral compositions including six symphonies and five piano concertos.
The three works for piano and orchestra on this disc span twenty years of the Czech composer's peripatetic career, from the Concertino (Paris, 1938) to the Third Piano Concerto (New York, 1948) and the Fifth Piano Concerto (Schonenberg, Pratteln, Switzerland 1958).
"This new volume of Martinu piano works is a near-complete delight... Koukl has a clear vision for each [piece]'s expressive language and there is a huge amount to enjoy on this richly satisfying and well-recorded disc." BBC Music Magazine on Vol. 3, 8557919
