Bartók:

Concerto for Orchestra, BB 123, Sz.116

3 Village Scenes, BB 87b, Sz. 79

Kossuth Symphonic Poem Sz21


“It is the flavour of this Concerto for Orchestra that wins the day. Just sample the subtle portamento that spices the string line at bars 52-3 (2'36'') of the first movement, and the sombre colouring near the end of the movement, at 8'58''. Fischer is a dab hand at shaping and inflecting the musical line, and his characterisation of the 'Giuoco delle coppie' – paced, incidentally, at the prescribed crotchet=94 – is second to none. He invests the 'Elegia' with the maximum respectable quota of passion and the 'Intermezzo interrotto' dances to a few added accents and the finale is a riot of sunshine and swirling skirts, except for the mysterious – and notoriously tricky – più presto coda, with its rushing sul ponticello string choirs, which Fischer articulates with great care. One senses that the players are being driven to the very limits of their abilities, which only serves to intensify the excitement.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

“Among recent rivals, only Zoltán Kocsis and his excitingly transformed Hungarian National Philharmonic begin to show comparable insights but not even they can match Fischer and company for keen observation, tingling spontaneity, adrenalin-fuelled virtuosity (the finale's main presto shoots off like a rocket), heartache (unforgettably plangent strings in the Elegia - here, as elsewhere, some tastefully judged portamento proves a boon), wicked humour and attractive local colour...” Gramophone Magazine, December 2005

“This is a very rewarding disc. It contains what is surely one of the finest recorded accounts of the Concerto for Orchestra while the remainder of the programme is stimulating and valuable. The recorded sound is very good, the notes are serviceable.” MusicWeb International, March 2015
