His father had recently died, and the composer was leaving much of his past behind him including his role as a violinist. In Paris he absorbed new musical styles and influences, and began a fruitful period of writing operas and ballets in this new cultural environment. His first three operas in particular bear the stamp, most notably The Three Wishes , which calls on banjos, saxophones, and flexatone in addition to a full orchestra for its film-within-an-opera set in New York City. The last major echoes of jazz came in the ballet King in Check , and the idiom only made subtle, occasional appearances in his work thereafter.

Choreography for La Revue de Cuisine
Bohuslav Martinu 's first few years in Paris were a real eye-opener for him. The Paris of the s was, of course, one of the most remarkable and diverse artistic centers of all time, and Martinu encountered a wider range of music and art than he ever had before.
