Budapest
Béla Bartók, piano /
Repertoire Note

Perhaps Bartók’s most radical setting of folksongs, indeed forming an original composition in its own right. Its virtuosic nature almost rivals the Three Studies, with which Bartók’s op.20 can well be paired, provided some recovery time is left afterwards.
