Neither the disillusionment that set in after his exile to the United States nor his declining health stopped Béla Bartók from fulfilling his commission for the Concerto for Orchestra nor from writing the Third Piano Concerto, his final work, intended to secure his wife’s future. Hence his gloomy circumstances led to two masterpieces (and gained him a long-awaited American reputation). They are magnificently served here by Javier Perianes and the musicians of the Munich Philharmonic under the direction of Pablo Heras-Casado.
