The recording illustrates both his versatility and his fantastically colourful musical language, and culminates in the exhilarating Piano Quartet, which is considered to be one of Martinů’s finest chamber compositions from his American years. It was immediately after completing this work that Martinů embarked upon writing the first of his six substantial symphonies - major contributions to the symphonic legacy of the first half of the twentieth century.
Two of the other works on this disc were also written during his stay in America – Piano Trio No.3 and Quartet for oboe, violin and piano. Duo No.2 in D for violin and violoncello completes the programme.
After 26 years at the forefront of British chamber music, the Schubert Ensemble is firmly established as one of the world’s leading exponents of chamber music for piano and strings.
