‘All in all, a most attractive recording, which can easily serve as the sole representative of this music in anyone’s collection.’

‘Whatever else may be on your “must” list of classical CDs to buy, move it all down a notch and put this one on top. The two full-scale Martinu concertos on this disc can stand honourably with the few cello concertos ever programmed. Wallfisch brings a compelling mix of technical first and expressive insight… Not enough can be said for Chandos’ vibrant recording which puts real life-blood in the cello sound.’
‘Disc of the Month’, CD Review

Cello Concertos Nos 1 and 2 are fully characteristic of Martinu and exemplary of the influence that France, in particular, had on his composition. They contain some of his best music and are here complemented by an early Cello Concertino.

This popular recording by Raphael Wallfisch and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra under Jirí Belohlávek is now available on the Chandos Classics label. The repertoire is rarely recorded and the disc will prove attractive on the market, at a highly competitive price.
