Notes and Editorial Reviews

This Decca Double Decker release offers world class performances and recordings of Bela Bartok's most famous orchestral works. Having received Grammy awards many times for his Bartok recordings (some of which have been reincarnated and are reissued here), George Solti is recognized as one of the composers foremost interpreters. The Chicago Symphony sounds as mighty and intensely responsive as ever; and Decca's sonics are simply spectacular with remarkable clarity and depth. This is Bartok for the ages.
