Boulez conducts Bartók

Berliner Philharmoniker; Pierre Boulez, conductor

It’s an all-round winner of a disc, with superlative playing from both soloist and orchestra, and a recorded sound to match. Andsnes’s view of the music is fairly traditional…[his] pedalling is a shade cautious, but he plays the piece so beautifully that there are no grounds for complaint…Overall, this looks set to be a highly enjoyable journey.
