About

Long overshadowed by the reputation of his Bohemian compatriots Smetana, Dvorák and Janácek, Bohuslav Martinu is at last enjoying his fair share of the limelight.

The three works presented on this recording display the Czech composer's endless creativity within the framework of a vivid concertante language. Isabelle Faust, Cédric Tiberghien & Jiri Belohlavek renew the succesful partnerships that brought us superb recordings of Dvorak and Brahms.

Gramophone Magazine gave Isabelle Faust its Young Artist of the Year Award for her first recording of sonatas by Béla Bartók, in 1997. Since then she has appeared with all the major orchestras.

Cedric Tiberghien's international career took off as he became a BBC New Generation Artist. For harmonia mundi, he has recorded four recitals, and more recently Brahms' Concerto No. 1 with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jirí Belohlávek.

Jirí Belohlávek, principal conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, is considered one of the foremost conductors of his generation and is a frequent guest conductor with the world's greatest symphony orchestras, including New York, Berlin, Boston,Vienna, London Symphony, the City of Birmingham, Leipzig Gewandhaus and the Dresden Staatskapelle.
