Two Timbres Over Easy

June 24, 2019

Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra is thought by many to be one of his most accessible scores for listeners. Commissioned by the Koussevitsky Foundation, the composition received its premiere in December 1944 in a performance by the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Maestro Maull guides us through Movement II, Presentation of the Couples, a humorous demonstration of the timbres of the symphony orchestra in pairs.

Inside Music with George Marriner Maull on WWFM The Classical Network is sponsored by Glenmede, an independent trust company providing investment and wealth management services with offices in Princeton, Morristown and Philadelphia.
