For the terminally sick Béla Bartók, voluntary exile in the USA was like being an uprooted, slowly withering plant – until the conductor Serge Koussewitzky managed to bring the composer’s spirits back with a commission from the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1943. The Concerto for Orchestra would become his most popular work, a showpiece for all groups, for woodwind and brass, string and percussion instruments. A guide through this composition of splendid, shimmering colour!
