It is extremely hard for any new recording to compete with the stunning 1967 Berlin account that Argerich made with the Berliner Philharmoniker under Abbado… Lang Lang certainly equals the boldness, power and communicative quality of Argerich’s account. Under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle the Berliner Philharmoniker is highly persuasive and sympathetic. Not for the first time the woodwind excel - marvellous. - Michael Cookson; www.musicweb-international.com

Redefining Hungarian Music from Liszt to Bartók (repost)

Redefining Hungarian Music from Liszt to Bartók by Lynn M. Hooker
English | Dec 3, 2013 | ISBN: 0199739595 | 320 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

Some of the most popular works of nineteenth-century music were labeled either "Hungarian" or "Gypsy" in style, including many of the best-known and least-respected of Liszt's compositions. In the early twentieth century, Béla Bartók and his colleagues questioned not only the Hungarianness but also the good taste of that style. Bartók argued that it should be discarded in favor of a national style based in the "genuine" folk music of the rural peasantry.

Inside Bluebeard's Castle: Music and Drama in Béla Bartók's Opera by Carl S. Leafstedt
English | Nov 4, 1999 | ISBN: 0195109996 | 254 Pages | PDF | 13 MB

This is the first book-length examination of Bartók's 1911 opera Duke Bluebeard's Castle, one of the twentieth century's enduring operatic works. Writing in an engaging style, Leafstedt adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the opera by introducing, in addition to music-dramatic analysis, a number of topics that are new to the field of Bartók studies. These new areas of critical and scholarly terrain include a detailed literary study of the libretto and a gender-focused analysis of the opera's female character, Judith.

Bartók compose son Concerto pour orchestre en 1943, en pleine guerre mondiale. En décryptant mouvement après mouvement, avec l’orchestre philarmonique de Radio-France placé sous la direction de Myung-Whun Chung, J.-F. Zygel révèle les clefs de ce chef-d’œuvre – au programme du baccalauréat- et montre comment chacun des instruments ou des groupes d’instruments est traité tour à tour en soliste virtuose. L’importance de la musique populaire dans l’œuvre de Bartók est soulignée, et des improvisations sur des thèmes du concerto sont proposées dans les bonus.

It usually takes about ten seconds to identify Ivry Gitlis' playing. No offense intended, but he is perhaps one of the most "anti-Classical" violinists, or the one whom you would least like to hear playing the Bach solo partitas. His free-wheeling approach to vibrato and intonation are not what wins praise in conservatories and awards at competitions these days. Often, it is said that Gitlis sounds like a gypsy violinist. There's nothing wrong with that, though, at least in certain repertoire. Gitlis takes us back to a time when classical music and musicianship were a little more wild and unpredictable than they are today.

From the notes: Until the last years of his circumscribed life, Hans Rosbaud lived and worked within a geographical triangle that had Graz at one corner, Aix-en-Provence at the other, and Frankfurt-am-Mein at the apex. His zeal on behalf of twentieth-century music was far-reaching, however, just as his excellence deserved bigger posts that the ones he chose….. Rosbaud was a notable advocate of music that other conductors tended to neglect or overlook after their first performances, and beyond that was a consistently diligent, profoundly insightful interpreter.

Concertos for two pianos and orchestra by Felix Mendelssohn and Max Bruch belong to the standard German romantic repertoire for piano duos. Genova & Dimitrov have recorded them as well as the concertos of Francis Poulenc, Darius Milhaud, and Robert Casadesus. If until these composers the piano above all functioned to develop complex melodic and harmonic relations, then the Hungarian composer, pianist, folk music researcher, editor, and teacher Béla Bartók moved the piano or pianos closer to the percussion family.
