BBC Music Magazine's Concerto Choice: Martinu's Double Concertos
"...the disc as a whole is another unmissable addition to the Martinu discography."
The BBC Music Magazine praises our release of "Martinu - Double Concertos" with Lawrence Foster, Mari Kodama, Momo Kodama, Sarah Nemtanu, Deborah Nemtanu, Magali Demesse, Orchestre Philharmonique de Marseille! Read a glimpse of the review below!
Here, the Kodama sisters' approach with Lawrence Foster and the very fine Marseille Philharmonic Orchestra (who knew?) is less mellow, more hard-hitting — essential in the powerful and unpredictable Adagio, the dark heart of the whole disc — but also alive to the magical fluidity of the dizzying outer movements. The 'emotional and rational strength' the Kodamas write about in the booklet note, the intuition necessary, are perfectly realised.
