In my youth I was familiar with him on '78s, as violinist partner to his pupil, the boy Menuhin, in the still evergreen recording of the Bach double concerto; later, in 1952/53, as a conductor of sensitivity and authority, despite being bent nearly double with a spine affiction which restricted his movements.

Extractions: One of the most prolific composers of the 20th.century was actually considered incompotent during his studies at the Prague Conservatory. Bohuslav Martinu is the most important Czech composer after Janacek, though most of his compositions, including his 14 operas, were written while he was away from Czechoslovakia. Bohuslav Martinu 1890 - 1959 Vaclav Klicpera 1792 - 1859 Martinu's works cover a variety of styles, including the one-act jazz opera Les larmes de couteau , three radio operas, and several full serious works. His most well known work is the 1937 radio opera Comedy on a Bridge . Based on the play of the same name by Vaclav Klicpera, the opera has been successfully transfered to the stage. A comedy about the absurdities of war, it remains a favourite for student performance. A previous radio opera, The Voice of the Forest , with words by the Czech poet Vitezslav Nezval, was broadcast by Czech Radio Prague in October 1935. Nezval also wrote the words to the first segment of Martinu's Marian opera, The Plays of Mary

Extractions: Naxos 8.557159 [63 mins] George Enescu (1881-1955) was a great musical polymath, less famed as a composer than he wished (in my experience, his music can be worryingly uneven - q.v. Radu Lupu at Lucerne). I was familiar with him in my youth as violinist partner to his pupil, the boy Menuhin, in the still evergreen recording of the Bach double concerto; later, in 1952/53, as a conductor of sensitivity and authority, despite being bent nearly double with a spine affiction which restricted his movements. In his liner notes, Richard Whitehouse writes about these subtle chamber works, their 'density of thought and subtlety of expression not easy to grasp fully at first hearing, but intriguing enough to repay repeated listening'. The repertoire of piano quartets and quintets is not a huge one, so good ones should not be jettisoned. The Naxos website is so well organised that for cyber readers more detailed introductory descriptions in reviews are redundant. Navigating to Composers/Enescu will take you straight to this CD, with tracks to hear and Richard Whitehouse's comprehensive essay.

Extractions: ~ Famous Romanians ~ Born on Feb. 21, 1876 in Hobita, Romania, he is a world famous artist who pioneered modern abstract sculpture. As a kid, he looked after his family's flock of sheep and learned how to carve wood. Later, Brâncusi's work was strongly influenced by traditional patterns. In 1894 he entered the School of Arts and Crafts with the help of a local industrialist. In 1898 he was admitted to the Bucharest School of Fine Arts. Brâncusi soon became curious about artistic movements abroad. In 1904, he decided to go to Paris. Brâncusi entered the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and later the workshop of the great french sculptor Auguste Rodin. However he left the master quite soon, convinced that " Only grass can grow in the shadow of the great trees ". In Paris he also became friends with the painters Amedeo Modigliani and Henri Rousseau. In 1937 and 1938 Brâncusi created a sculptural ensemble in the Romanian town of Targu Jiu. These three important pieces - "The silent Table", "The Gate of the Kiss", and "The Endless Column" - are based on the idea of a "Temple of Meditation", serving as a tribute to the Romanian soldiers who died in World War I. Brâncusi's works attracted many great art collectors. Many of his works can now be seen in museums across the United States, including at the National Gallery of Art here in Washington, DC.
