Tibor Serly (1901-1978), a good friend of Béla Bartók, was a composer, conductor, and violinist. He orchestrated the last few measures of Béla Bartók’s 3rd piano concerto, and a few years later Bartók’s viola concerto, which was only in sketch form at the time of the composer’s death in 1945.
This CD contains two of Béla Bartók’s works conducted by Tibor Serly, and one composed by Tibor Serly for solo violin.
He arranged, with Béla Bartók’s permission, a series of pieces from Bartók’s Mikrokosmos suite.
Both of the suites from Mikrokosmos and the Miraculous Mandarin are available on this label #BR 1301
