Realease of the latest NAXOS Cd

Only last week, Naxos released another Cd with Martyn van den Hoek as a soloist.  Together with the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Christopher Lyndon -Gee, Martyn can now be heard in his interpretation of the Partita for Piano and Orchestra by Igor Markevich. This composition , as opposed to the earlier recorded Concerto for Piano ( Naxos 8. 225076)  the Partita , written in 1931, makes use of many more daring harmonies and  rather Avant Garde playing technics. The Cd also features the Oratorium le Paradis perdu, written two years later.
