Bartok Piano Concerto No. 1 is my favorite piano concerto. There is a lot of white noise, but the sound quality is high resolution. I can hear the detailed phrases of the piano. I think it's a very good sound . but I like No. 2 the most, so I don't need No. 3.
Here we find a high rez release of a sort of very fine but dark horse recording of Bartok's first and third piano concertos. Everyone is doing this music expertly with great relish, great commitment. For some reason, though, this release (as well as others by Peter Serkin, son of Rudolf Serkin) have just missed catching fire with a wider audience. It's a pleasure to hear it all again in pure DSD 128, both on headphones and on the home rig speakers (Tekton Lore Reference with an SVS cylindrical subwoofer). Along with this release, there is also an HDTT release of the even more famous Ferenc Fricsay, Berlin Radio Symphony recording with Geza Anda as soloist. All this very special Bartok in top notch sound begs to leave a listener breathless? Bravo, and Thanks !
