Notes & Reviews:
This well-filled 2cd set - nearly 2 hours and 40 minutes long - presents bartók's major concertos (the viola concerto appears on another eloquence cd released this month- cat # - 4800713). The three piano concertos appear in muscular and sumptuously recorded performances (one of the finest examples of decca's 1970s engineering at the venerated kingsway hall) by pascal rogé and walter weller. Likewise, the second violin concerto resurrects a long-buried 1980 argo recording by the late iona brown, with none other than sir simon rattle conducting. The first violin concerto, the result of an ultimately called-off love affair with stefi geyer, found its music rechannelled into the two portraits and in kyung wha chung and chantal juillet, respectively, find two of the composer's most persuasive advocates.
