Béla Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra is one of his greatest works. It is a brilliant showcase for each instrumental section of the Orchestra, but also a work of considerable structural ingenuity that unites classical forms and sonorities with the pungency of folk rhythms and harmonies. This release follows Marin Alsop's 'riveting' (Gramophone) Baltimore Symphony recordings of Dvorak's symphonies. For a limited time, take 20% off the companion titles in this feature.
