I can really only echo Amazon's intrepid reviewer on this Firkusny recording of Martinu's Piano Cto's. # 2,3 & 4. The pieces are great in themselves, which fascinatingly chronicle 3 decades of the composer's development, one concerto each from the 30's, 40's and 50's, as he grows progressively more inventive. Firkusny is a great pianist who did the world premiers of all of the concertos and had the 4th dedicated to him. Pesek handles the scores with skill and dash. The recording job is excellent. There! I'm out.

Deadly Conducting Dec 7 2012
By Peter P. Fuchs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am amazed that anyone could rate this disc highly. The conducting by Pesek is such a travesty. Of course Firkusny always plays well, but there is zero support for what he is doing throughout, and this can be clearly heard in the Third concerto when compared with the Palenicek/Ancerl performance. It sounds as if the conductor gave absolutely no thought to the shape of these works, and so it remains just a disc with great solo moments, but adrift on a sea of what has become vague and plangent Martinu-isms. Not a "tribute" to pianist or composer.

Roll over the Beatles Oct. 18 2012
By Bernard Michael O'Hanlon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, the quartet from Liverpool were dubbed the Fab 4. This disc, which was awarded a Rosette by the Penguin Guide in those days when such an epaulette counted for something, is also a Fab 4.

It is fabulous music.

It is fabulously played - it does not get any more idiomatic than this.

It is fabulously recorded.

You'll feel fabulous as you luxuriate in this melodic, prismatic music.

Oi Ringo, give us a drumroll!
