Concerto for Orchestra, Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta.

Performer: Los Angeles ka Salonen. Both demand virtuoso playing and they get it from every section of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. But Salonen seems unable to coax from his string players all the gradations of intensity, of bowing and vibrato, which bring this music to life, and the wind players miss much of Bartók’s wit and humour in the Concerto. The result is performances which – despite occasional startling bursts of speed from Salonen – rarely rise above the routine, and certainly never begin to rival Fritz Reiner’s blazing RCA recordings with the Chicago Symphony in the Fifties

Esa-Pekka Salonen is a great conductor and has proved himself time and time again, but there's something about this Bartok recording that, to use Santa Fe Listener's analogy, leaves me cold. Santa Fe was spot on with his critque of this recording. Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta" (1937) dates from Bartok's modernist apogee. The first movement is a fugue for strings, progressively louder as more and more voices enter, so that the listener expects a loud and crashing climax. What Bartok instead produces is a sudden slackening of the pace, diffusing all of the tension in a different way, a clever trick to play on listeners raised on classical tropes.
