As Bohuslav Martinu 's oeuvre is increasingly performed and recorded, it becomes more apparent that he was one of the most fascinating figures of 20th century music and that his music has gone unknown too long in the west. The String Quartet No. Its asymmetrical rhythms and pungent harmonies make it a bracing work, and of the three pieces presented on this album, it is by far the most challenging.
The same cannot be said for the String Quartet No. This is an example of the youthful Martinu overreaching to find a solid stylistic direction to pursue, but from an excess of enthusiasm, he went too far with the form.
