Product description

Details Playing Time: 76 min. Bartok: The Three Piano Concertos Yefim Bronfman Piano - Bela Bartok (Composer), Esa-Pekka Salonen (Conductor), Los Angeles Philharmonic This is the recording of Bartók's piano concertos the world has been waiting for. Yefim Bronfman conquers not only the tremendous technical difficulties of the music, but also the widely varying moods, from the violence of the First Concerto through the otherworldly calm of the Third. Esa-Pekka Salonen leads the Los Angeles Philharmonic through the extremely difficult orchestral writing without a misstep, contributing his own powerful impulse to the music while seconding Bronfman's ideas. The recording is nearly ideal in its clarity, balance, and dynamics. It's hard to find a more satisfying CD of any music in the current catalogs. 1. Concerto For Piano And Orchestra No. 2: I. Allegro 2. Concerto For Piano And Orchestra No. 2: II. Adagio - Presto - Adagio 3. Concerto For Piano And Orchestra No. 2: III. Allegro molto 4. Concerto For Piano And Orchestra No. 3: I.
