Ernest Ansermet's view of Bartók was a lyrical one and his incredible ear brought out lines, sonorities and shape in this music that have rarely been equalled.
Here, collected together on CD for the first time, are his complete Bartók recordings for Decca as part of the ongoing 'Decca Ansermet Legacy' and they include some of his most famous orchestral works, with a first release on CD of the Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, and a first international release of the other orchestral works. The Piano Concerto No. 3, released as part of the Ansermet volume in Decca's 'Original Masters' features Julius Katchen as soloist.
