Bohuslav Martinů: Complete Chronological Catalogue on Spotify

"The artist is always searching for the meaning of life, his own and that of mankind, searching for truth. A system of uncertainty has entered our daily life. The pressures of mechanisation and uniformity to which it is subject call for protest and the artist has only one means of expressing this, by music." - Bohuslav Martinu

"Along with Leoš Janáček, Bohuslav Martinu was one of the twin giants of Czech music in the twentieth century, a composer with a distinctly individual voice and a versatility that led him to excel in every medium from stage works to symphonies to string quartets."  - AllMusic

This playlist is compiled after the comprehensive catalog of Martinů's works prepared by the Belgian musicologist Harry Halbreich. Martinů wrote a bewilderingly large amount of music in various forms; in chamber music alone there's duos, trios, quartets, quintets, sextets, septets, octets and nonets, in all kinds of instrument combinations - like the Fantasia for theremin, oboe, string quartet and piano. You can use various keywords like "piano" or "concerto" to filter the playlist and create different radio channels.

Get this collection in one Spotify playlist: Bohuslav Martinů: Complete Chronological Catalogue (944 tracks, total time: 68 hours). Ctrl (CMD) + G to browse in album view. Notes to the compositions can be found on this catalog page.


  1. Wow, that's a lot of music. Thanks! :D

    (Question? Do you know why Spotify only allows access to fragments of some larger works, like the operas? You'd think it would be all or none.)

    1. Most likely it's because the labels (not Spotify) set long tracks as "album only". It makes sense for iTunes and Amazon MP3, not streaming services.

  2. Wonderful music - a bit of a revelation to me.
