This stunning album, recorded in the spectacular Estonia Concert Hall in Tallinn, features to works by Bohuslav Martinu(1890-1959), performed by the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Neeme Jarvi. Martinu was one of the most diverse composers of music for the stage. Spalicek was originally published as a ballet, but is better described as an opera-ballet, showcasing the composer's love for experimenting with different kinds of media in his works. Rhapsody-Concerto, written in 1952, shows the nostalgic depression that the composer was facing at the time of composition. The viola soloist performing on this recording is Mikhail Zemtsov.
