About the album

Between 1954 and 1955 the Hungarian pianist Andor Foldes recorded a substantial corpus of Bartók’s solo piano music for Deutsche Grammophon. Given his work with and close association with the composer, this is a significant reissue, and it is also the first time all four LPs (represented as per the original, across four CDs) appear on CD. All the major Bartók solo works are included here – from larger pieces like the Sonata, Suite, Op. 14 and Out of Doors to many of the miniature dance works, pieces from Mikrokosmos and For Children, the Romanian Christmas Carols and the Allegro barbaro. The booklet features a new note by Bartók expert Kenneth Chalmers as well as notes on performing Bartók by Foldes himself.
 
‘such masterly playing, now assertive, now gentle and consoling, makes the Sonata seem a work of flaming genius’ […] ‘Foldes plays Bartók’s music with the utmost brilliance and refinement … In the Romanian Christmas Carols his sense of rhythm is superlative … The recording is superlative’ Gramophone (1957)
