About

A reconstitution of the fabulous Bartók concert given by Ferenc Fricsay and his orchestra - Paris, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, May 25th, 1952.

This original programme juxtaposes a truly original piece for violin and orchestra, the First Portrait (1907-8); the most authentic and virtuoso 'Dance suite' on record; the first performance of Piano Concerto No.2 by Geza Anda and the fantastic climax of the Divertimento, marked by this memorable conductor's sense of giocoso.

A worthy homage to Fricsay for his centenary.
