I'm rather frustrated trying to locate many Martinů discs that I must have stored away. I felt a
"Martinů flood" coming on but I guess that will have to wait. As much as I love the symphonies I won't bother posting any as I think several blogs already have done justice there. I will continue to post other orchestral/concertante/chamber/solo/vocal and of course any rarities.
This Naxos disc is simply joyous;
the Trio for Flute, Cello and Piano, the Trio for Flute, Violin and Piano (the 3rd movement, track 6 marked Allegretto is too effervescent for words, I just love it!), Promenades for Flute, Violin and Harpsichord and the Madrigal Sonata for Flute, Violin and Piano are all charming charming charming works, really some of the sweetest and (for the most part) happiest of Martinů's neoclassical chamber works. And dear Bohuslav wrote *alot* of chamber music (and a lot of everything else; Martinů was
almost too prolific for his own good). No matter the genre, when Martinů is neoclassical in his writing I'm always enchanted. Enjoy!
