Debussy Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune
Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 3
Bartók Concerto For Orchestra
Debussy and Bartók discovered strikingly different solutions to the problem of composing contemporary music that captivated general audiences.

Bartók’s Concerto is an intense virtuoso orchestral showpiece in which every department has a chance to shine.
