Bartok: The Piano Concertos Customer Reviews
Wow, that's all you can say here. Each pianist is wonderfully attuned to the individual character of the concerto they are playing, and Boulez's engagement with Bartok is unequestionable. Each orchestra contributes wonderfully. My only complaint, and it is tiny, is that with three different orchestras and recording venues, the accoustic changes a bit between concerti and they are not all three ideal. I was least take with No. 2, where I thought it was all too closely miked. But heard in isolation I think No. 2 would be just fine; it's only in comparison with the other concerti that it seems less realistic in terms of balances.

Great playing of great music. This is THE definitive recording of the Bartok piano concertos. Much better than Geza Anda`sfamous recording. If you love good piano music than this is for you!
