Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra, Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta performed by The Boston Symphony Orchestra/ Rafael Kubelík

Recorded with startling clarity, Rafael Kubelík and the Boston Symphony’s 1973 account of Bartók’s Concerto-in-exile blazes with passion and nostalgia. Seiji Ozawa’s fill up* is efficiently done, if less characterful.
