Miljana Parčetić’s personal pick of the month – July 2023

“Martinů Cello Sonatas – display of unbreakable bond between two diametrically opposed worlds.”

Our wonderful Coordinator A&R – Miljana Parčetić – recommends Martinů Cello Sonatas.

I am extremely pleased that in Pentatone we collaborate with great musicians such as Johannes Moser and Andrei Korobeinikov, who, despite the challenges we all face on a global level in the past few years, were able to faithfully illustrate all the states of consciousness and turmoil that Bohuslav Martinů faced while composing the movements of his three Cello sonatas. Through the equally well-received album Martinů Cello Sonatas by active and passive participants in today’s musical life, our previously mentioned artists depicted Martinů’s compositional and pedagogical qualities, his life during the Second World War, more precisely his emigration and integration between different cultural and social worlds. The perfect combination of fusion that the composer creates between deep registers and a light almost lyrical melody, combined with an undeniable influence of jazz and Bohemian folk melody, portrayed by an amazing Moser-Korobeinikov duo are some of the many qualities that make the auditory value of this album stand out.”
