Bartók, Béla: Allegro Barbaro (1911)
for piano solo

Territory

This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the USA only.

Repertoire Note

The quintessential Bartók to the ears of the broader public. Its ‘barbaric’ title arose as the composer’s reaction to being called a ‘barbarian’ in the French press. As well as heading a clutch of earlier Bartók piano works, Allegro Barbaro is an effective ear-cleanser after a set of Romantic piano music.
