"From a musical point of view, but especially with regard to the stageworthiness of the work, these cuts represent an absolute improvement" Bartok wrote to his publisher when he had finished his definitive revision of his Wooden Prince. Cutting out much of the music relating to specific stage action, but also generally tightening the symphonic structure, it allowed it's large-scale mirror form to appear clearer. "Normally performed and recorded in it's non-revised full-length version, it has been a joy now to follow Bartok's inspired last wish revision of this mystic, vital, otherworldly, and grotesque fantasy music, " says Thomas Dausgaard. This album is the third in his survey of Bartok's orchestral works, and as before, he has recorded a version of a major work seldom heard. The rare and final version of the Wooden Prince is coupled with the masterful Divertimento and the Romanian Folk Dances.
