5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant cd, 15 Mar 2011

This review is from: Martinu: Double Concerto For Strings, Piano And Timpani, Concerto For String Quartet And Orchestra & Tre Ricercari (Audio CD)
Martinu is an inventive composer. The music on this disc exhibits a playfulness with texture, timbre and colour. The first piece on this cd exemplifies the tortuous darkness of much twentieth century music and rather than being a difficult pill to swallow is instead a powerful medicine for existence's dark hours. The playing and sound is excellent and one wonders if Martinu is not due for some critical reassessment. The last piece Tre Riceraci is joyful and exuberant. Don't miss it

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent music, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Martinu: Double Concerto For Strings, Piano And Timpani, Concerto For String Quartet And Orchestra & Tre Ricercari (Audio CD)
I love Martinu music, very accessible 20th century classics, full of colors, and really beautiful. I have been listening to and collecting Martinu CDs little by little since I encountered Isabel Faust's violin concerto of Martinu released from Harmonia Mundi, which is also one of my favorite. This CD starts with dark and powerful DOUBLE CONCERTO FOR STRINGS, PIANO & TIMPANI, sounding like Bartok or King Crimson. I really love it.
