One senses {in Bartók`s Concerto for Orchestra} that the players are being driven to the very limits of their abilities, which only serves to intensify the excitement. While not meaning to sound like an Iván Fischer `groupie`, I am delighted to welcome yet another winner from this wonderfully responsive orchestra.
