it’s long been the go-to recording for so many fans of this work, but I’d still happily listen to this new "Original Source" pressing and not feel like I’m missing anything. The great thing about this hobby is we’re allowed to buy both, and that’s what I’d recommend here, because you get to hear the remarkable differences an interpretation can make to a piece.Sound 10/11 Trackingangle

Rafael Kubelík stood up for the music of Béla Bartók throughout his life. With the Boston Symphony Orchestra, in 1973 he presented an interpretation of the Concerto for Orchestra that is still considered a reference recording today. „This is a performance to keep making you smile with delight (…) Kubelik presents a relaxed view with the rhythms pointed to bring out the wit, above all the peasant-like jollity.“ (Gramophone)
For its 125th birthday, Deutsche Grammophon started releasing legendary recordings with highest sound standards: The audiophile vinyl series The Original Source presents outstanding recordings from the 1970s in a whole new sound quality. For this, the renowned Emil Berliner Studios have remastered and edited the original four-track tapes in 100% analog quality (AAA) using technologies developed specifically to produce the series. The sonic differences to the original releases are considerable: greater clarity, more subtleties and improvements in frequency response, while at the same time less background noise, distortion and compression allow for an audiophile listening experience like never before.
On 180g vinyl records and in a deluxe gatefold edition with original covers and lyrics, the copies of this series are released limited and numbered, accompanied by additional photos and facsimiles of the recording logs and band boxes, and an article explains the exact technical background.
