Bartok: Violin Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 - Viola Concerto
by James Ehnes
Released: Sep 2011
Canadian violinist Ehnes paints an instructive portrait of Bartok through these concertos: the posthumously published, delicate themes of the first violin concerto (written for a student with whom Bartok had fallen in love); the spectral viola concerto (which was unfinished at his death in 1945); and the second violin concerto. Ehnes takes to all three of these with tangible verve, and the BBC Philharmonic support is spot-on.
