London Philharmonic Orchestra
Exiled from his beloved Hungary, Béla Bartók was lonely, impoverished and critically ill. His response? The mightiest shout of joy in all 20th-century music. His Concerto for Orchestra isn’t just a showpiece for an orchestra at the top of its game; it’s a celebration of the human spirit. It tells a compelling story – just like Sibelius’s musical retelling of an ancient Finnish legend, and Dvořák’s radiant, hugely underrated Piano Concerto: a red-blooded romance for orchestra and a pianist with poetry in their fingers. Pierre-Laurent Aimard loves it; and with Karina Canellakis, winner of the 2016 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award, on the podium, this should dance as well as sing.
