Review by JJ June 1, 2014 (1 of 3 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
This SACD strives to be “the reconstitution of the concert given at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées on May 25, 1952 in the framework of the Festival of work of the 20th century, based on recorded documents of the period,” specifies Pierre-Emile Barbier. Generous in its offering, the disc proposes “Deux Portraits” Op.5 Sz 37 BB488, “Dance Suite” Sz 77 BB 86, the “Concerto pour piano N°2” Sz 95 BB 101, and the “Divertimento pour orchestra à cordes” Sz 113 BB 118. This Ferenc Fricsay Edition is a vibrant tribute to the Hungarian conductor sourced from tapes that have been remastered. Fricsay is surrounded by Geda Anda on the piano, Rudolf Schulz and Willy Kirch on the violin,Walter Brosse on the viola, Walter Lutz on the cello, and Hermann Schumacher on the double bass. Here is a great moment of musical communion – never before heard in such a remastering – that is urgent to procure.
