Géza single-handedly helped the Bartók’s Second Piano Concerto attain a truly international breakthrough - in Salzburg in1952 -; this album offers his first public performance of the work in 1950. This recording allows a fascinating insight into the beginnings of a lifelong passion and shows why Anda was predestined to become the paramount representative of this concerto. Even as a very young man, Anda had performed the Tchaikovsky first, but in later years this most famous of all piano concertos only sporadically appeared on his programs. This recording from 1973 documents a blissful evening; sound, touch and phrasing always remain flexible and differentiated with all the desire of overflowing - life-affirming gestures. A subtle, burnished tone of exquisite beauty and sublime serenity informs his interpretation of the Intermezzo in E flat major, Op 117, No. 1 by Johannes Brahms, performed by Anda as an encore following the Tchaikovsky Concerto, opening up the very poetic essence of this late Brahms work.
