About

Anda’s recordings of the concertos have acquired classic status. Anda seems ideally cast as soloist and Fricsay is a natural Bartókian.  Performances are refined yet urgent, incisive but red-blooded too....The Berlin Radio Orchestra plays with considerable virtuosity” - Penguin Guide 3 stars

At long last we have a worthy recording of the Bartók Second Concerto ... This will be valuable in helping to spread a knowledge of an important work in Bartok's output which is rarely heard in the concert hall … Geza Anda in particular is to be congratulated for the way he romps through any difficulties ... There is no lack of recordings of the more popular Third Concerto, but the new one is, to my mind, way ahead of the field.” - Gramophone
