About this Recording

BARTOK, B.: Miraculous Mandarin Suite (The) / BRAHMS, J.: Symphony No. 1 (London Symphony, Pasternack)

Béla Bartók’s pantomime The Miraculous Mandarin was banned after its first performance in 1926, but the composer’s orchestral suite quickly became a popular concert work, appreciated for its energetic rhythms and daring harmonies. Though facetiously dubbed ‘Beethoven’s Tenth’, Brahms’s Symphony No. 1 is also, in its own way, a no less revolutionary work which charts a journey from darkness to light from its brooding introduction to its euphoric finale. This splendid 2008 recording joins other fine LSO albums available from Naxos.
