These works are not well known outside of Czech-speaking lands, but the lyrical choral song, madrigalian or otherwise, fascinated Bohuslav Martinu for some years: the works here date from between 1934 and 1959, shortly before his death. Three of the sets are designated as madrigals, a form that would have been in the air during the composer's years in France. Perfectly balancing external influences and Czech melodic content, they are absolutely characteristic of the composer. The slow pieces contain some of Martinu's most attractive melodies (sample the third track, from the 1959 set of Madrigals for soprano solo and mixed chorus a cappella). The non-madrigal works on the album incline further in the direction of Czech folk music, even though two are sacred in content. The forces of the Three Sacred Songs are the highly unusual female chorus and violin, and these have an especially haunting effect. The Martinu Voices are a powerful, virtuoso choir of professional singers, and their sound in itself is often impressive, but the madrigalian and French aspect of the music would sometimes seem to call for a lighter touch. This is nonetheless an attractive recording of some almost unknown music, and a must for Martinu lovers.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.
