Béla Bartók: Music for Strings, Percussion & Celesta (3rd Movement)

The Third Part of Bartok's masterpiece, an eerie slow movement, is a classic bartokian "night music" piece. Here the RIAS symphony Orchestra under Ferenc Fricsay, who was Bartok's student, deliver an incredible, stunning performance. For me this is the best version ever of this work and it is a shame that Deutche Grammophone could not record it in stereo.
