This is one of a number of top class performances of Bartok's 2nd violin concerto recently, I have acquired them all and would not be without any of them. Kelemen's performance is full of vitality, with much more than just brilliant technique, and he is superbly supported by Kocsis and his Hungarian players. My only gripe is that this Hungaraton hybrid SACD does not play on my old but audiophile quality Proceed cd player, I can only play it by ripping it (having to enter all the metadata manually!) and streaming it through my Linn Klimax DS. But it was worth the trouble!!
