120 Miklos Rozsa Concerto for Viola and Orchestra, Op. 37 Tibor Serly Rhapsody for Viola and Orchestra Lawrence Power (viola) Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Andrew Litton. Bartok, Lawrence Power, Litton, Rozsa. Label : Hyperion Format : Flac (image + cue) Cover : Yes. Tracklist : Bela Bartók Viola Concerto, BB 128, Sz. 120. Miklos Rozsa Concerto for Viola and Orchestra, Op. 37. Tibor Serly Rhapsody for Viola and Orchestra. Lawrence Power (viola) Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Andrew Litton.

Serly himself went on to write a concerto and a Rhapsody for viola and orchestra (heard here) that were greatly inspired by Bartók's work. Largely known for his highly successful film scores (especially the film Spellbound), fellow Hungarian Miklós Rózsa also produced a viola concerto. These three works are heard on this Hyperion album performed by violist Lawrence Power with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra under Andrew Litton. Power possesses precisely the skills necessary to make a viola concerto really hold its own against the more common violin concertos.

Orchestra: Bergen Philharmonic. Conductor: Andrew Litton. Composer: Bela Bartok, Miklos Rosza, Tibor Serly. Audio CD (October 12, 2010). Serly's Rhapsody for Viola and Orchestra has the additional interest of letting you recognize that Bartok's Viola Concerto is entirely Bartok and not a whiff or Serly. Rhapsody was written in 1946-48, while Serly was working on his completion of Bartok's manuscripts.

Lawrence Power (viola), Bergen Philharmonic, cond Andrew Litton. October 3 2010, 1:01am, The Sunday Times. Here’s a wonderfully imaginative piece of record programming: Tibor Serly (1901-78) completed Bartok’s Viola Concerto after his compatriot’s premature death in 1945, while Miklos Rozsa (1907-95) composed his between 1980 and 1984, when it was premiered by Pinchas Zukerman and André Previn in Pittsburgh

The Bartók Viola Concerto is presented in Tibor Serly’s familiar completion and again, there’s an urgency about the playing that is offset by a profoundly poetic response to the work’s many lyrical episodes, especially the central Adagio religioso. Litton has a keen ear for detail and Andrew Keener’s engineering team supports him with sound that is both transparent and full-bodied

The Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra¿s latest is riveting and stands up to repeated playing. Bartók's concerto, completed after his death by Tibor Serly, who also composed the Rhapsody for Violin & Orchestra that concludes the CD, is as one would expect: an enjoyably prickly mix of 20th-century dissonance and traditional peasant-like folk with some melancholy moments. The great revelation here, though, is Rózsa's dark, mellifluous work, the viola's shimmering pentatonic meanderings underpinned by a bright, energetic orchestra
