50 GREATEST RECORDINGS OF ALL TIME (No 45) - BBC MUSIC

"Fritz Reiner persuaded Serge Koussevitsky to commission Bartók in 1943 to write his orchestral masterpiece, and it was Reiner who went on to make the ultimate recording in 1955 with the Chicago Symphony. Expertly juggling the music's wry humour, despair and sense of shattered dreams, this version is a crisply recorded wonder of an analogue age." BBC Music
