Chamber music occupies a significant place in the vast output of Bohuslav Martino. His 'First Piano Quintet', written in 1933, a period during which Martino renewed his interest in the folk-lore and traditional music of his native Bohemia, is a fine instance of the neo-classicism dominating his output in the 1930s. The larger-scale 'Second Piano Quintet', composed in 1944, exhibits the restlessness and anxiety that Martino felt during the war years. The 'Sonata for Two Violins and Piano' is freer and more relaxed than the two quintets, and is written in a style more baroque than classical.
