Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this marvellous record
Yet for my money this disc is “where it’s at,” to use street slang. Dorati gives us stunning clarity and some real insights into a work that’s a lot more complex than other recordings will have you realize. There are inner details revealing Bartok’s complex cross-rhythms that often get lost in the frenzy of brass and percussion in many performances. Amazingly, this recording is as powerful and, well, “loud” as any other, yet all the delicate detail shows through. You’ll hear lines you never heard before, and discover phrases to be make up of combinations of instruments you didn’t realize.
