Symphony Boston Hall, Boston. As part of its Remastered Classics series of Quadraphonic recordings from the 1970s, Pentatone has released two impressive recordings of orchestral works by Béla Bartók in the multichannel format. Rafael Kubelik conducted the Boston Symphony Orchestra in the Concerto for Orchestra, which Bartók designed as a virtuoso showcase for that ensemble, while Seiji Ozawa led the same orchestra in the Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, which Bartók originally composed for the Basel Chamber Orchestra.
In the Music for Strings, Percussion & Celesta, Ozawa's flair for detail, well-defined articulation and a full-bodied, brightly-lit and colorful orchestral palette fares slightly better. However, there is an even more pronounced cavernous acoustic than in the Concerto, which manages to blunt some of Ozawa's extrovert energy. The present Bartok disc from Pentatone (1973 and 1976 DG recordings) is just such an album, sounding a lot better than it might have from a scratchy LP over forty years ago. The first thing on the program is the Concerto for Orchestra by Hungarian composer and pianist Bela Bartok (1881-1945), performed in a 1973 DG recording by the Czech conductor and composer Rafael Kubelik and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. We hear it all in Music for Strings, this time in a 1976 recording with Seiji Ozawa leading the Boston Symphony.
