Notes & Reviews:
A story of desire and death, The Miraculous Mandarin is one of Bartók's most expressionist works. Its subject provoked scandal and censorship when it was first performed. Originally released in 2002, this was the world premičre recording of the original score restored in 1999 by Péter Bartók, the son of the composer. This version contains 30 bars previously missing and also restores dynamics, bowings and other performing directions from the autograph. Also featured are the Dance Suite and the 4 Pieces for Orchestra Op.12. Leading the Lyon Orchestra is David Robertson, recognized by critics and audiences around the world for his notable interpretative skills in music of the 20th (and 21st) centuries.
