Bohuslav Martinu's (1890-1959) Rhapsody-Concerto of 1952 is one of the major viola concertos in the 20th-century classical repertory, though it isn't performed quite as often as those by Bartok or Walton. Though its title conveys a sense of looseness of form, it is in fact thoughtfully crafted and worked out. It is cast in two movements, though works as a unified whole. Like the composer's sixth symphony, it is filled with imaginative thematic transformation, as well as the buoyant harmonies and glittering textures his music is known for. This release, edited by Jurgen Sommer, presents this mid-century masterpiece in a clean and high-quality urtext edition.
