Bartók for Orchestra
OUTSTANDING VALUE 6 CD SET
Bringing together all of Bartoks great orchestral works in this collection. Stunning performances from the Hungarian State Symphony Orchestra under the batton of their favourite conductor Adam Fisher. In these recordings you get a true sense of the traditional folk rythms that Bartok used in many of his compositions. Only Hungarians play Bartok this way.
|Review||"Gerhart Hetzel was the Vienna Philharmonic's principal leader; ... that he was an experienced and perceptive Bartokian is beyond doubt ... His bowing is full and warm (qualities much facilitated by the 1790 Stradivarius he plays), and his flowing turn of phrase evidence of careful study and deep understanding." Gramophone|
