“The first time I encountered Martinů’s music I was prenatal when my mother was singing Martinů’s ‘Sung Ballet’ with a choir …” Bohuslav has told The Violin Channel.

“As a young violinist, I recorded Martinů’s complete string quartets with the Stamic Quartet – and his violin and piano works with, pianist Petr Adamec … Martinů’s body of works for the violin are gorgeous and very extensive …” he has said.

“For some listeners, the first encounter with the music of Martinů can be quite shocking  – but I am immensely happy to be the bearer of his wonderful music.”
