"Fantastic! Bartok's Contrasts, commissioned by Benny Goodman and Josef Szigeti (with Bartok at the piano) show Bartok's intelligence and thirst of exploration of instruments. These Contrasts explore the full range of all three instruments, demanding technical virtuosity from each musician. These pieces are a must for the repertoire of all serious Piano, Clarinet and Violin trios.
Reccommended listening: The orignal recording with Goodman, Szigeti and Bartok The recording with Yehudi Menuhin (violin), Jeremy Menuhin (piano) and Dame Thea King (clarinet). Available on the Yehudi Menuhin DVD on EMI Classic Archive 25.
