Further to David Bryson's decade-old recommendation of this marvellous recording as a non-abrasive but not un-challenging entry to Bartok's music, as another entry-point to this strange and endlessly rewarding music I'd propose the ravishing one-act ballet The Wooden Prince, based apparently on a folk story. This was actually written as a companion-piece to Bluebeard's Castle in the hope of their being performed in an evening together. I don't know if they ever were: the ballet, beautiful and interesting though it is, is really too lightweight to match the power of Bluebeard and his doomed bride.

For a truly intense evening in the theatre I would pair it with Erwartung - in fact I think Robert LePage did just this some years ago, with predictably harrowing psychoanalytical results, given the period of their provenance. Boulez has made a very fine recording of the ballet for DG - it has an awesome sunrise to match that in Daphnis.
