Béla Bartók »Concerto for Orchestra«

Béla Bartók
»Concerto for Orchestra« (1943)

Gürzenich-Orchester Köln
François-Xavier Roth conductor

Béla Bartók sums up his pioneering oeuvre in his »solo for everyone«, the Concerto for Orchestra: spurred by the rhythmic energy of Hungarian folk music, animated by a musical language in which the elements of nature themselves begin to speak, formed by perfect compositional craft, he invites his listeners to an ecstatic dance on the volcano of the 20th century.
