BRAND NEW & COLLECTIBLE. First Edition, First Printing. Anthology of 16 detailed studies and documents published in the 5th year of the death of Hungarian-born musician Bela Bartok (1881 - 1945), who emigrated to the US in 1940 under political pressure. Selections, many translated, are gathered into three parts: Part I, Essays; II, Writings by Bartok; and, III, Writings About Bartok. Last selection is a collection of poems inspired by Bela Bartok and translated by Peter Laki. From Lajos Kassak, "Let us say something of the composer, too . He is as thin as a fish bone/ White as a lily/ But if he sits down at the piano/ He turns into a dragon/ Rattles, cries, and sometime barks/ So that the sky becomes dark, and the walls of the houses crumble .".

Acerca de


Béla Bartók, who died in New York fifty years ago this September, is one of the most frequently performed twentieth-century composers. He is also the subject of a rapidly growing critical and analytical literature. Bartók was born in Hungary and made his home there for all but his last five years, when he resided in the United States. As a result, many aspects of his life and work have been accessible only to readers of Hungarian. The main goal of this volume is to provide English-speaking audiences with new insights into the life and reception of this musician, especially in Hungary.

Part I begins with an essay by Leon Botstein that places Bartók in a large historical and cultural context. László Somfai reports on the catalog of Bartók's works that is currently in progress. Peter Laki shows the extremes of the composer's reception in Hungary, while Tibor Tallián surveys the often mixed reviews from the American years. The essays of Carl Leafstedt and Vera Lampert deal with his librettists Béla Balázs and Melchior Lengyel respectively. David Schneider addresses the artistic relationship between Bartók and Stravinsky.

Most of the letters and interviews in Part II concern Bartók's travels and emigration as they reflected on his personal life and artistic evolution. Part III presents early critical assessments of Bartók's work as well as literary and poetic responses to his music and personality.
