New Bartók biography

Posted by Johannes Feigl on 27 Mai 2015

Béla Bartók by David Cooper

The music is still intense but the intensity is channelled through angular lines, grinding dissonances, and a pitiless counterpoint as severely rational as Schoenberg’s so-called ‘12-note’ music. (Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph, 27 May 2015)
