About

Ferenc Fricsay, the great Hungarian conductor who died prematurely (1914-1963), contended that musicians had to work on Bartók’s major works in order to master Mozart’s unique combination of profundity and giocoso.

His compatriot, the great pianist Annie Fischer, provides eloquent proof of this here, in the Andante movement of the 21st Concerto (famously featured in Bo Widerberg’s film Elvira Madigan), reflecting her intimacy with Bartók’s last concerto, composed for his wife Ditta from his deathbed.
