Bartók: Concerto for Orchestra
According to Bartók, ‘The general mood of the Concerto for Orchestra represents a gradual transition from the sternness of the first movement, to the life-assertion of the finale’. The result is a tour-de-force of creative exuberance, remarkable from a dying composer suffering severe emotional dislocation from his homeland.
