This article is rewritten from the authoress MA thesis, 'The Paris Reception of Bohuslav Martinu between 1923 and 1940', compiled in 2005 from material collected during her sabbatical at the Universite de Paris-Sorbonne. The article presents a continuous picture of the forms and changes of the reception of Bohuslav Martinu's personality and work in the contemporary Paris press during the course of the seventeen years of his life there. A survey of the reviews of his work, year by year, from twenty-two selected periodicals, is supplemented by a description of the periodicals and reviewers that are essential for the correct evaluation of the reviews.
