Tibor Serly - Keeper of the flame.

Taking a break from Radio Transcriptions this week and offering commercial recordings instead. This one from Bela Bartok's longtime assistant and champion Tibor Serly, who conducts the New Symphony Orchestra of London is Bartok's Deux Images for Orchestra.

It was recorded at Kingsway Hall, London on August 1950 and was originally issued as an early lp (BRS-305)

The work is in two parts - "In Full Flower" and "Village Dance".
