    Béla Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto is one of the most touching of the 20th century. The gravely ill composer found his way to a tone for which he had not previously been known: more melodic, softer, almost religious. András Schiff, a favourite of the Berlin audience and closely bound to Bartók through his shared Hungarian origin, interprets the work with Herbert Blomstedt, who conducts Johannes Brahms’s First Symphony after the interval.

    In the words of one critic, András Schiff is “a magician of sound who breathes life into works, and who upholds the almost forgotten ideal of piano playing”. In this recording from 2010, he takes on the roles of both soloist and conductor in two austerely bleak D minor piano concertos by Bach and Mozart plus Joseph Haydn’s Military Symphony, a work which also takes its listeners close to the abyss with idyllic scenes which time and again are interrupted by the horrors of war.
