Concordance is proud to have released  the world premiere recording of Csaba Erdelyi's Restoration and Orchestration of the Bartok Viola Concerto.

The Work was left in an uncompleted form when the composer died in 1945, and for many years the only way in which the work could be heard was in the completion by Hungarian Tibor Serly.

But Bartok experts have worried for years about the value of the Serly completion, and over the last twenty two years, since the original pages of Bartok's manuscript have been available for study, Csaba Erdelyi has laboured painstakingly to create a version that would do honour to the composer's memory.

He has produced, after exhaustive study and consultation, a number of interim 'completions', and now he has arrived at his definitive version - the Restoration and Orchestration 2001. That is what you hear on this recording. As well, you will hear this world class violist collaborate with talented conductor Marc Taddei and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Berlioz' strangely evocative symphony - Harold en Italie.
