The Orfeo disc compiles performances over several decades of some of Bartók’s most important works, including pianist György Sándor as the brilliant soloist in a 1955 recording of the Piano Concerto No. 2 and Sándor Végh leading the Camerata Academia des Mozrteum Salzburg in a stunning 1995 reading of the masterly Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta (whose third movement is familiar to anyone who’s seen The Shining). © 2019 The Flip Side

The Art Music Lounge, January 2019

Kubelik’s exciting, dynamic performance of the Concerto for Orchestra that really stands out as a winner. This is very nearly as good as the classic Reiner recording, and in digital sound to boot. Kubelik leaves no stone unturned in this clear, exciting reading of the score. He pulls all the stops out and delivers a simply magnificent reading. Along with the Fischer-Fricsay performance of the third concerto, this is the reason you should own this set. © 2019 The Art Music Lounge Read complete review
