London Philharmonic Orchestra under Vladimir Jurowski, with Barbara Hannigan (soprano).
Intense darkness pervades these four works from the 1930s and '40s:
Anton Webern's Variations for Orchestra, Op 30; Alban Berg's 'Lulu Suite' (Symphonic pieces from the opera 'Lulu'); Bohuslav Martinu's Double Concerto (two string orchestras, piano and percussion); and Béla Bartók's Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste.
