•The discovery of several manuscripts of works previously unperformed, unknown or believed lost has allowed Giorgio Koukl to extend its acclaimed series of Martinu’s piano music for Naxos.

•This seventh and final volume includes several world première recordings – all but two of these works have never been recorded before.

•While the inspiration for From Andersen’s Fairy Tales seems clear enough, the ‘Goldilocks’ of his other youthful fairy tale set was probably a girl with whom he fell in love.

•The remaining short pieces help to complete the portrait of this frequently underrated composer, his life and unsettled times.

“This new volume of Martinu piano works is a near-complete delight. Koukl has a clear vision for each [piece]’s expressive language and there is a huge amount to enjoy on this richly satisfying and well-recorded disc.” BBC Music Magazine
