Notes & Reviews:

Recorded as part of their critically praised Infernal Dance season, the Philharmonia Orchestra under Esa-Pekka Salonen explore three contrasting works by Bela Bartok - the chamber piece Contrasts and the orchestral works Dance Suite and The Miraculous Mandarin. Contrasts is one of Bartok's most imaginative forays into the world of chamber music while Dance Suite is a rhapsodic collection of folk inspired tunes. The Miraculous Mandarin is raw, dangerous, exotic and elemtnal.
