Ernest Ansermet`s view of Bartok 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 Bartok recordings for Decca as part of the ongoing `Decca Ansermet Legacy`. They include some of his most famous orchestral works with a first release on CD of the Music for Strings, Percussion & 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.
