Four virtuosic works from the 20th century are grouped here, conducted by Cristian Macelaru. Both Bartók works provide moments for starry performance, especially the vibrant piano concerto. Stravinsky’s suite is drawn from a larger opera, and the ravishing Debussy work still stands as a work that changed the course of music forever.
