About

This recording focuses on three of Martinů’s song-cycles, and a selection of individual songs from an early period in his life that sheds fascinating light on his enthusiasm for song composition.

Songs On One Page and Songs On Two Pages were written during his American exile, both utilising traditional and folk texts in compact but expressive ways. Set to Japanese lyric poetry, Niponari is one of his most important early compositions, revealing a transition from late-Romanticism to impressionism.

beautifully and often movingly sung…a most rewarding disc’ - Gramophone (Vol.1)

This is the third volume in the series.
