The vast Decca back catalogue is one of the glories of the classical music industry, and there are some remarkable performances (such as George Solti’s definitive performance of Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra). But classic performances of the past for this late masterpiece now have a very competitive newcomer to contend with: the Concerto for Orchestra recorded in Tacet’s customarily all-enveloping surround sound – and, what’s more, matched by a performance that does full justice to the rich Hungarian flavouring of Bartok’s score, even though the latter was written in America.
