More productions with “Concerto Budapest”


“… They (Bartók and Kodály) wanted not only to put the Hungarian into the light, not to serve a mere colony of German music history, but to study folk music in all its manifestations, moreover – Bartók said in 1931 – to serve the fraternization of peoples. Later they explicitly aimed at “a synthesis of East and West”. This very turn from the Hungarian to the global is nowhere more evident than in one of the last works, the Concerto for Orchestra, which outwardly echoes the Hungarian Pictures as they do the early period of folk music research…” (from the liner notes by Jan Reichow)

This recording (like the entire TACET catalog, by the way) not only captivates on first listen, but invites you to savor countless small details, each twist a treasure that András Keller and the musicians of Concerto Budapest bring out as knowledgeably as they do lovingly.
