The Onyx label presents a new series from condutctor Thomas Dausgaard and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra that celebrates the scope and stylistic variety in Bartók’s compositional output. Whether inspired by impressionistic or late romantic music or folk music from Central Europe, Bartók’s music speaks to us with an irresistible vitality, passion, humor, and compelling seriousness. This is apparent no more so than in his youthfully exuberant Suite No.1, recorded here for the first time in it’s original uncut version. The suite is paired with his last completed orchestral work, the Concerto for Orchestra.
