The music of Bohuslav Martinů , whose complete solo piano works have also been recorded by Giorgio Koukl for Naxos, can ring like bells, shimmer like a mirage or pulse with sheer rhythmic vitality as is the case with these three piano concertos, where high drama, brilliant tunes, captivating colouristic effects and tongue-in-cheek frivolity all find their place.

Gramophone Magazine

January 2011

“clarity and precision of touch is evident in [Koukl's] playing throughout, allied to a natural musicality and a positive sense of structure shared by conductor Arthur Fagen, who supports in exemplary fashion...Koukl highlights the music's mercurial changes of atmosphere and elliptical construction with consummate skill and is warmly recorded.”
