This review is from: Bartók: Piano Concertos 1-3 (DG The Originals) (Audio CD)
If your view of Geza Anda as a pianist has been coloured by his pioneering but uneven cycle of the Mozart concertos, then this disc will be a revelation. The partnership with Fricsay clearly drew sparks from both, and there is a sense of electricity and danger about the fast movements which shows they were completely at one in this fascinating music. The slow movements reveal a dark, longing quality which reflects the call of their Hungarian homeland for composer, conductor and soloist alike. Highly recommended.
