Notes and Editorial Reviews

Emmanuel Krivine and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra devote this CD to two emblematic works from the end of Bartók’s life: the Violin Concerto No.2, first performed in 1939, and the Concerto for Orchestra, premiered in 1944. These are absolutely major works both in Bartók’s catalog and from this period in the history of music. -----

REVIEW:

The recordings are closely balanced and spatially vivid, with clearly defined violin desks to the left and right of the rostrum. Tedi Papavrami has a richly yielding tone, an overtly expressive playing style, and the ability to dart in and around Emmanuel Krivine's animated accompaniment.
