Comment:Jiri Vodicka, joins the Smetana Trio on violin for this recording of Piano Trios by Ravel and Shostakovich. Ravel's of 1914 makes a huge contrast positioned between the post-revolution 1st Shostakovich of 1923 and his bitter wartime 2nd of 1944.

CD Cover Frantisek Jiranek Concertos Classification: Supraphon New Label: Supraphon CD Number:SU 4208-2 Price:£13.36

Comment:Frantisek Jiranek (1698-1778) is a shadowy figure in Bohemian music, sometimes fused with Antonin Jiranek, who became Anton Giranek in a Germanised form. Whatever, this selection of concertos is a wonderful addition to our knowledge of Bohemian Baroque.
