Bartók, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Fritz Reiner – Concerto For Orchestra
1 in stock (backorders allowed)
Vinyl, LP, Reissue
Fritz Reiner’s friendship with Béla Bartók must be considered an important factor in the creation of these legendary recordings. Serge Koussevitsky was among the first conductors to both perform and record this masterpiece. For all its virtuosity, the concerto is structurally symphonic, and Reiner goes under the dazzling surface to touch the tragic core of the work and draws a deeply moving performance from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
