BOHUSLAV MARTINU

Complete Symphonies

Bamberg Symphony Orchestra / Neeme Järvi

As with all enormously prolific composers, Martinu’s works are uneven in quality; but his symphonies are generally held among the outstanding 20th-century examples of the genre. All six were written in the USA, the first five in consecutive years from 1942 - the shadow of war can be heard in several march-like movements - but they frequently reveal the composer’s Czech origins, particularly in the stirring slow movements which become darker and more probing as the cycle progresses. The textures and rhythms have a percussive energy that derives both from his formative years of study in Paris in the 1920s and from the prominent use of a piano within the orchestra.

‘The Bambergers play for all they are worth for Järvi, who brings out Martinu’s individual qualities and secures a remarkable degree of clarity.’ Gramophone
