4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 24, 2008
Format: Audio CD
This disc contains three of Bartók's marvelous works for string orchestra. Well, more or less. Actually the Divertimento is the only Bartók score here originally for strings alone. The Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta has, um, percussion and celesta, too. And the Rumanian Folk Dances have been arranged for string ensemble with piano obbligato by this disc's conductor, Jean-Marie Zeitouni.

The Divertimento and MfSP&C were commissioned in the 1930s by Paul Sacher for his Basle Chamber Orchestra. Zeitouni's approach to both of them is rather soft-edged and even a little bit timid. But for those who find Bartók a bit harsh for their taste, these might be more than acceptable performances. They are among the most-played of Bartók's orchestral pieces and there are many recordings. I'm particularly fond of Boulez's recording of the Divertimento with the Chicago Symphony Béla Bartók: Divertimento / Dance Suite / Hungarian Sketches / Two Pictures - Chicago Symphony Orchestra / Pierre Boulez, and although it is in less-than-modern sound, I love Reiner's Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, also with the CSO Bartók: Concerto for Orchestra; Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta; Hungarian Sketches. The latter also contains one of the very best performances of Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Muscular, atmospheric, and mercurial sound from a smaller ensemble than typically records these masterpieces. Bartok just does not need the plush, massed strings of Vienna or Philadelphia to make his points. One could have wished for a slightly wider/deeper sound stage with MSPC, and on the very best equipment this may not be an issue. A bracing, hydroelectric alternative to Mississippi-river brand Bartok.
