Boulez, I assure you, is truly excellent. 4 people found this helpful. And then, there is Music for Percussion, Strings, and Celesta. I often think of what Edgar Allen Poe meant when he mentioned the "music of the Spheres", the sound of the cosmos, literally. This is such an example. There is something terribly beautiful in the unsettling masterpiece. It takes you to dark, primitive, intimate places, but also has a hidden epic reach. Segments have been used in Kubrick's Shinning, and it would not be out of place accompanying a reading of Lovecraft, or, indeed Poe. A must listen, just skip the Mandarin, the true miracle lies in the accompaniment.
The Miraculous Mandarin (Hungarian: A csodálatos mandarin; German: Der wunderbare Mandarin) Op. 19, Sz. 73 (BB 82), is a one act pantomime ballet composed by Béla Bartók between 1918–1924, and based on the story by Melchior Lengyel. Premiered November 27, 1926 in Cologne, Germany, it caused a scandal and was subsequently banned on moral grounds. Although more successful at its Prague premiere, it was generally performed during the rest of Bartók's life in the form of a concert suite, which preserves about two-thirds of the original pantomime's music. The landmark 1983 performance of the complete ballet by Hungarian conductor Antal Doráti, a friend of the composer's, with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra brought the complete score to the attention of a wider public. Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta. 44 Duos for Two Violins.
