Recorded live at the Barbican in London, these recordings represent the first complete CD cycle of Martinů’s symphonies conducted by Jirí Belohlávek. The critically acclaimed concerts were given to mark the 50th anniversary of Martinů’s death in 2009. Martinů’s six symphonies are a major contribution to 20th-century symphonic literature, and yet are still undervalued. Spanning the years during and after the Second World War, they capture the turmoil, hopes and fears of the composer and his homeland.
