Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, one of his greatest works, was
written in the United States after the composer was forced to flee
Hungary during World War II. It is not only a brilliant display vehicle for
each instrumental section but a work of considerable structural ingenuity
that unites classical forms and sonorities with the pungency of folk
rhythms and harmonies. Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta
explores darker moods through a score of marvellously poised symmetry.
This release follows Marin Alsop’s ‘riveting’ (Gramophone) Baltimore
Symphony recordings of Dvorák’s symphonies. director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. With her inaugural
concerts in September 2007, she became the first woman to head a
major American orchestra. Her most recent appointment as principal
conductor of the Sao Paulo State Symphony Orchestra (OSESP),
starting in 2012, marks another historic appointment for her. In 2005,
Marin Alsop was named a MacArthur Fellow, the first conductor ever to
receive this prestigious award.
