London Symphony Orchestra, Jonathan Pasternack

Béla Bartók’s pantomime The Miraculous Mandarin was banned after its first performance in 1926, but the composer’s orchestral suite quickly became a popular concert work, appreciated for its energetic rhythms and daring harmonies.

Though facetiously dubbed ‘Beethoven’s Tenth’, Brahms’s Symphony No. 1 is also, in its own way, a no less revolutionary work which charts a journey from darkness to light from its brooding introduction to its euphoric finale.

This splendid 2008 recording joins other fine LSO albums available from Naxos. It is the debut recording for American conductor Jonathan Pasternack.

Introduction (Street Sounds) - The thugs order the girl to the window

The girl entices the old rake

The girl entices the young man

The girl entices the Mandarin

The girl slowly begins to dance for the Mandarin

The dance concludes - the Mandarin chases the girl
