Bartók’s three piano concertos are a priceless treasure of the 20th-century. Each distinct, they give us three perspectives of the mature composer’s persistent creative growth: from the fearless modernist to the monster virtuoso to the folk-inflected poet. Yuja Wang’s astonishing gifts are suited for the awesome challenges Bartók sets before her. Hear the concertos in chronological order as part of these exhilarating programs that feature music by his contemporaries Stravinsky and Janáček.
