Martinů’s magical Fourth Piano Concerto („Incantation“) sparkled under the fingers of young Czech soloist Ivo Kahánek, while Britten's Sea Interludes and Prokofiev's Fifth Symphony lacked necessary depth. …In an auspicious Proms debut, Ivo Kahánek whipped up more of a storm as soloist in Martinů’s Fourth Piano Concerto, full of typical percussive brilliance and an astonishing stabbing solo part.

...Martinů´s Fourth...its restless invention, punguency and virtuosity were given sharp focus by the pianist Ivo Kahánek, with keen gritty involvement in the citrus tang from the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Jiří Bělohlávek.
