Third volume of Early Ochestral Works is out

Toccata Classics released third volume of early orchestral works by Bohuslav Martinů. This series has offered, for example, the first recording of the ballet Shadow, H 102. In the following years, two more volumes are going to be released. As in previous albums, orchestra Sinfonia Varsovia with British conductor Ian Hobson perform Martinů’s early and almost forgotten pieces.

The album contains two shorter pieces, Dream of the Past, H 124 with pianist Agnieszka Kopacka or Ballade (after Böcklin’s picture Villa by the Sea), H 97, for which it is the first recording ever. Also the symphonic triptych Vanishing Midnight, H 131 from 1922 receives here its first recording.
