Concerto for Orchestra - Bartok ("symphony" with series of solo-istic intrument pieces ? - CFP 176)

£5.99

Product description

This work could possibly also be considered to be a five-movement symphony, as it seemingly follows a somewhat symphonic tradition of : Allegro ; Allegretto ; Andante ; Allegretto ; Presto. However, Bartok titled it as "Concerto for Orchestra" because, as he saw it, both single instruments and also, groups of instruments, during the piece, are so often treated in a highly soloistic manner.

Bartok had just recovered from serious illness, when he commenced work on "Concerto for Orchestra", and this is reflected in the order of the moods, within the work - a gradual transition from the sternness of the first, to the jesting of the second, to the lugubrious death-song of the third, and finally, to the life-assertion of the fifth. It was an immediate success in his adopted country, the US, and brought the composer belated recognition from the American public.

Side One :-
1) I Introduzione : Andante non troppo - Allegro vivace 2) II Giuoco delle coppie : Allegretto scherzando

Side Two :-
1) III Elegia : Andante, non troppo 2) IV Intermezzo Interrotto - Allegretto 3) V Finale - Pesante - Presto

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX-/VG+.
