 A Big Box that Does Everything Right November 6, 2017 By Paul Breslin (Evanston , IL) See All My Reviews "Most surveys of a a composer's complete works contain a mixture of excellent and mediocre performances. Sometimes they are underdocumented--for instance, like the otherwise admirable big box of Stravinsky conducting Stravinsky, they omit the text and translations for vocalpieces. In this set, the quality is remarkably consistent. The performances of the piano music (by the late Zoltán Kocsis), the major orchestral pieces (conducted by Iván Fischer and Georg Solti),the Sonata for 2 Pianos and Pecrussion (Martha Argerich and Stephen Kovacevich), the three piano concertos (Kocsis and Fischer, but also as a bonus the Anda/Fricsay versions), the 2nd violin concerto (Viktoria Mullova with Esa-Pekka Salonen), and Bluebeard's Castle (Ludwig, Berry and Kertesz) are all either top choices or among the best recordings. And you get the Takács cycle of the quartets, to my ears superior to the much-praised Emersons.The only disappointment in a major work is Solti's Cantata Profana, with a rather swimmy acoustic and a tenor soloist who sounds pinched in the upper register. It's not bad, but it's not up to the rest. The Boulez performance, though not as idiomatic, is much better recorded, with a better soloist. (A hair-raising old mono LP led by Walter Susskind, sung in English, first introduced me to this piece.) And then there are all the less famous works, many of them wonderful. Most of the early choral arrangements of Hungarian folk music have appeared on Hungaraton, which apparently licensed their use in this collection. Listening to them chronologically, you can hear the way eastern European folk music gradually influenced Bartók's musical idiom. (And I was startled to find in one of them the source of the folksong "Anathea," popularized by Judy Collins back in the 1960s). The booklet opens with the BB catalogue of the composer's works,next to the CD and track numbers of the performances. Texts and translations for all vocal and choral pieces are included. There are also extensive notes. The German essay is a translation of the one in English, but the notes in French are by a different author. If you can read French, you have the benefit of both. One minor question: A few of the very early BB numbers are not included. I do not know whether Bartók withdrew these pieces or incorporated them into later ones--or there were simply no performances available. If someone knows the answer, please enlighten me."
