Bartok: Piano Concerto No. 2, Divertimento, Dance Suite, 2 Portraits
Geza Anda, piano
RIAS-Sinfonie Orchester, Berlin
A reconstitution of the fabulous Bartók concert given by Ferenc Fricsay and his orchestra, Paris, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, May 25th, 1952. This original programme juxtaposes a truly original piece for violin and orchestra, the First Portrait (1907-8); the most authentic and virtuoso 'Dance suite' on record; the first performance of Piano Concerto No.2 by Geza Anda and the fantastic climax of the Divertimento, marked by this memorable conductor's sense of giocoso. A worthy homage to Fricsay for his centenary.
