Audio: Martinu: ‘Thunderbolt P-47’

What a fun piece this is — Bohuslav Martinu’s “Thunderbolt P-47.” It was written in tribute to the great fighter planes that helped to win WWII by the Czech emigre composer in 1945. It might make a nice addition to a patriotic concert, something beyond the usual suspects. I can just picture propellors spinning and a fleet flying through the clouds.

    Tim, you might also enjoy this piece from Honegger. It’s in a similar vein.
