Repertoire Note

Available in a variety of authorized versions, the First Rhapsody, and its Second companion, provide further examples of the slow-fast movement pairings very popular in Bartók’s earlier years. These Rhapsodies’ orchestral versions can interchange on programmes with the somewhat more extensive Two Portraits or Two Pictures.
