About

Volume 1 in a series of albums covering Bartók’s major works for orchestra.

“To celebrate the great scope and stylistic variety in Bartók’s works, this new series of his orchestral works aims to bring together two or more stylistically contrasting works on each disc. Whether inspired by impressionistic or late Romantic music, by Gypsy music as heard on the streets of Budapest, peasant music from Hungary and Eastern Europe, Arabic music from the Mediterranean region, or – towards the end of his life – by a synthesis of many influences, Bartók’s music speaks to us with an irresistible vitality, passion, humour and compelling seriousness. No more so than in this album’s youthfully exuberant Suite no.1 (here in its uncut original version (first time on record) and his last completed orchestral work, Concerto for Orchestra (in this performance incorporating his final changes), where remarkably he returns to the five movement structure of the First Suite.” – Thomas Dausgaard
