Notes and Editorial Reviews

Beethoven, a young charmer at the time, submited to the art of rococo variations on Mozart arias that were in vogue. Martinù took over this playful approach with Rossini then adapted it to folk song whilst preserving the freshness, its hidden gravity and its original authenticity. Jiri Gemrot pastiches Beethoven with humour then, like a real heir of Martinu, pays tribute to Dvorak.
