Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra derives it's name from the approach taken in treating instrument groups within the orchestra in a "concertante" or soloist manner throughout the piece. This virtuoso treatment, for example, is notable in the fugato section of the first movement where the brass are highlighted as well as in the second movement where pairs of instruments appear consecutively creating a brilliant passage. Stokowski's interpretation of his popular Bartok composition was recorded at the Houston Civic Center by Bert Whyte and team and originally released in March of 1961.
