Bela Bartok: Suite from 'The Miraculous Mandarin' conducted by Tibor Serly [BRS 301] recorded in 1953

Bartok Records was formed in 1950 and until 1962 released LP records. Although at first concentrating on the compositions of Bela Bartok, eventually they branched out to other composers as well.

This LP features a suite from Bartok's ballet, 'The Miraculous Mandarin,' with Tibor Serly conducting the "New Symphony Orchestra" -- apparently a collection of UK orchestra musicians -- and recorded at the legendary Kingsway Hall, London.
