Béla Bartók (1881-1945) Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion (1937). SICPP 2013 Tuesday, June 18, 2013 Jordan Hall at New England Conservatory.
Though rarely performed, since it requires the unusual combination of two superb pianists and two virtuoso percussionists, the Sonata is considered one of Bartok's most individualistic and expressive works. Series: "La Jolla Music Society: SummerFest" .

The Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion, Sz. 110, BB 115, is a musical piece written by Hungarian composer Béla Bartók in 1937.
Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. Béla Bartók, Ditta Pásztory-Bartók (pianos), Fritz Schiesser, Philipp Rühlig (percussion). Orchestra version: 1942-11-14 in London, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Philharmonic Society concert. Louis Kentner, Ilona Kaboswith (pianos), Ernest Gillegin, Frederick Bradshaw (percussion), London Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Adrian Boult (conductor).
The parts for the four soloists were essentially unchanged. The world premiere was given at the Royal Albert Hall, London, at a Royal Philharmonic Society concert on 14 November 1942, with percussionists Ernest Gillegin and Frederick Bradshaw, the then husband and wife piano team of Louis Kentner and Ilona Kabos, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Adrian Boult. The title, 'Rhapsody', is a reference to the dramatic contrasts between the movements. Bartók specified that each of the movements can be performed separately-not only the fast second movement but also the more serious slow opening movement (Walsh 2005, 235).
This album features two works by Béla Bartók, a leading composer of the early 20th-century, and three concertos by Romanian composer György Ligeti, one of the most important composers of the late 20th-century. Founded in 1976, Ensemble Intercontemporain is a Paris-based contemporary music ensemble of 31 soloists who are dedicated to music from the 20th and 21st centuries. Hidéki Nagano (piano), Pierre Strauch (cello), and Jeann e-Marie Conquer (violin) are all featured on this album. Each work could fairly be considered groundbreaking. First there is Bartók, with the Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion and Contrasts (commissioned by Benny Goodman). As the liner notes make clear, a young Ligeti took up the torch following Bartók’s death. The three concerti here are an instructive juxtaposition.
The album offers a good range of Bartók's voluminous piano music, from the compact but thorny and rather Stravinskian Piano Sonata of 1926, to several interesting sets of folk dances, plus the heavily folkish Sonatina, to the difficult Etudes, Op. 18, to the consistently crowd-pleasing Sonata for two pianos and percussion at the end. Tiberghien's touch is light and even breezy, with an improvisatory feel. If you want a pounding Sonata for two pianos and percussion, look elsewhere; Tiberghien keeps the ensemble of second piano François-Frédéric Guy and percussionists Colin Currie and.
