Classic concert from Paris this week. The legendary Pierre Boulez leads Orchestre de Paris in a concert of music by Arnold Schönberg and Bela Bartok, with pianist Bertrand Chamayou in the Bartok 2nd Piano Concerto. Recorded at Salle Pleyel on December 21, 2011 by the veneral Radio France Musique.
The concert starts with Schönberg’s iconic Verklaerte Nacht – and then Bertrand Chamayou joins the band for Bartok’s 2nd Piano Concerto (on the top player). After intermission (and switching to the 2nd player), the concert concludes with a performance of Bartok’s Concerto For Orchestra.
Another memorable Pierre Boulez concert – perfect Anti-Road Rage Wednesday music.
