In a basement an old cobbler watches through a window as people walk past wearing the shoes he has made.  At night he reads the Bible and experiences an extraordinary spiritual revelation, in his short opera What Men Live By.  When Martinu arrived in America, conductor Serge Koussevitzky commissioned a Symphony.  It set Martinu in new musical directions.  These recordings are the last made by conductor Jiri Belohlavek (1946 – 2017) of Martinu’s music.
