EDITION ZEZA REPRINT SERIES
Bohuslav Martinů's Symphony No. 2, H. 295, was composed from May 29 to July 24, 1943 under a commission from the Czech community in Cleveland.
Martinu's Second Symphony is also a work of Haydnesque proportions. It is not a Neo-Classical work, nor does it use a chamber-sized orchestra, but it is a remarkably calm and relaxed composition, full of charm. Here Martinu de-emphasizes his tendency to write motives rather than melodies and to develop them polyphonically; the Second Symphony is based in true melodies, often with a Czech flavor.
