This series of first-ever recordings of Martinů’s early orchestral works has already uncoveredmuch delightful music; this third release moves everything up a gear.
The symphonic triptych Vanishing Midnight (1922) will prove a revelation: a big-hearted work ofbreathtaking opulence and striking confidence.
Vanishing Midnight is as exquisitely lovely as it is powerful and dramatic – Martinů’s first truemasterpiece, but it is also his last full-on engagement with Impressionism
The two shorter works here – Ballade: Villa by the Sea and Dream of the Past – are colourful andatmospheric tone-poems, pieces of real substance and major discoveries in their own right.
