The music of Bohuslav Martinu , whose complete solo piano works have also been recorded by Giorgio Koukl for Naxos, can ring like bells, shimmer like a mirage or pulse with sheer rhythmic vitality as is the case with these three piano concertos, where high drama, brilliant tunes, captivating colouristic effects and tongue-in-cheek frivolity all find their place. Volume 1 - Piano Concertos Nos. 3 & 5 (8.572206) has been acclaimed for its 'Buoyant and exuberant performances' (Gramophone Editor's Choice) and as 'an auspicious debut [and] extremely well played' (International Record Review).
