Piano concertos # 1 and # 2 are a lovely listen to..
Bartók wrote these pieces for himself to perform, and he must have enjoyed a challenge. The speed and complexity are mind-boggling.

Bartók's Piano Concertos are among the most difficult ever written; only a piano virtuoso of amazing dexterity, along with a virtuoso orchestra, can play them. Maurizio Pollini is that pianist, and the Chicago Symphony is that orchestra. The pianist's command of the music is consistently impressive, and Claudio Abbado leads the orchestra in extremely close sympathy with the pianist.
