About

An opulent yet logical combination of recordings by conductor Walter Susskind in honour of Bartók, under the technical direction of the latter’s son Peter. Their purity of sound and style is unaltered by time. The Prologue, narrated by bard Ernö Lorsy, heralds the rhythm, colour and mood of the mystery play, imbuing it with meaning, even to non Hungarian speakers.

Bartók’s Cantata Profana is based on a Romanian ballad about the enchantment of nine boys taught nothing but to hunt for stags. Consequently they turn into stags themselves, never to return to man’s imperfect world...

Recorded in London, Kingsway Hall, June 1953
