BARTÓK: A Portrait 2 CDs



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Well over half a century after his death, B?®la Bart??k is held up as one of the twentieth century's great musical modernists, routinely coupled with revolutionaries like Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Webern and Var?¿se. But Bartok's was a very different kind of journey. In some ways he was also a great conservationist, collecting and cataloguing his country's folksongs, and looking for new ideas in the sounds of nature. Bart??k was not a creator of systems, never an iconoclast; rather he sought ways forward by turning music back to its primal, natural roots before the forces of urbanisation and mechanisation cut them off completely. His message is therefore as relevant today as it has ever been. The discs include music from 'Out of Doors', 'Mikrokosmos', 'Music for Strings', 'Percussion and Celesta', the string quartets, the 'Miraculous Mandarin', Concerto for Orchestra and more.
