Pastorales; Six Pieces For Cello And Piano by : Bohuslav Martinu
“Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959) was a prolific Czech composer; writing many large scale works. The composer moved to Paris in 1923 where he began experimenting in a variety of composition styles. Pastorales for Cello and Piano was published in 1931 and is made up of six pieces. Martinu himself was a violinist and the beginning of his experiments in composing for solo instruments saw him write for strings. Pastorales for Cello exemplifies the composer's influence of Stravinsky; Debussy neoclassicism; surrealism and jazz. The piece is excitingly virtuosic in its use of double stops; complex rhythms; chromaticism; and ensemble between the Cello and Piano. As a varied; substantial work for the Cello repertoire; Martinu's Pastorales is essential for the advanced performer.”
