Catalogue Number: 09J068
Description: The two largest-scale of all Martinu's piano works are on this latest installment: the Fantaisie et toccata of 1940 (with the swirling colors and dark edginess of the first two symphonies) and the sonata from 1954 (think Sym. No. 6). The 16 Etudes and Polkas were written on Cape Cod in 1945 and have a post-war optimism while mixing Czech folk roots with Martinu's distinctive style. Giorgio Koukl (piano).
