Tiberghien’s Bartók survey continues with a disc of delights—juxtaposing the Sonata and Sonatina, contrasting the timeless charm of Three Hungarian Folksongs from Csik with the virtuosity of the Three Études and capping the sequence with Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. Bartók’s piano idiom, generally less resonant than, say, Liszt’s or Chopin’s, oddly benefits from the stylistic amplification lent by other instruments: a thought provoked by this fine account with François-Frédéric Guy and the percussionists Colin Currie and Sam Walton.
