Notes & Reviews:

This rare recording of the two-piano version by Bartok of his own orchestral ballet, The Miraculous Mandarin, will delight Bartok fans everywhere. The two-piano arrangement reveals the audacity of Bartok's creative vision with a clarity that is often lost in the popular orchestral version. Filling out the disc is the more familiar 1937 Sonata for Two Pianos & Percussion, often nominated as one of the greatest chamber works of the twentieth century.
