Two upcoming releases from Toccata I thought I'd point out:



Shortly after the world premiere recording of the complete incidental music to Much Ado About Nothing on Ondine, here comes another recording, this time using the chamber orchestra forces for which it was written. So, I'm exactly not sure why the CD cover says "first complete recording" Huh Maybe it is even more complete than the Ondine recording!



I'm not as familiar with Martinu's earlier works, so this disc should provide the perfect opportunity to start exploring them!

I recently got the Glanville-Hicks 'Sappho': absolutely lovely music (though I know some of you are not interested in opera).

I strongly recommend the Martinu disc Smiley

The music is utterly delightful. The Little Dance Suite is nothing of the kind Grin At almost 43 minutes in length it is longer than any of Martinu's symphonies. It is Martinu's tribute to Dvorak and Smetana....and none the worse for that Grin

The Orchestral movement and the Nocturno I are remarkable pieces, full of Impressionistic atmosphere.

A heart-warming disc Smiley

Two fine composers. I'm a late convert to Martinu and will be happily ordering the disc. In case some members haven't heard it, I heartily recommend the Calliope disc comprising the Sinfonietta giocosa, the Toccata e due conzoni (a masterpiece IMHO), and the 1928 Jazz Suite, all concertante works with piano.
