Performance Today®

with host Fred Child

: Martinu's Kitchen Revue

Composer Bohuslav Martinu CTK (Czech Television Corp)

During the 1920s, Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu began to withdraw from the styles in which he was trained, and ballets became his favorite medium for experimentation. On today's show, hear ballet music set in an unusual setting: La Revue de Cuisine (Kitchen Revue) by Bohuslav Martinu.
