Bold Belá Bartók

Bartók was born in Nagysentmiklós, Hungary in 1881 and died in New York in 1945. His mother initiated his piano lessons and studied conducting under the guidance of Laszlo Erkel. Then, in 1899, the Budapset Royal Academy of Music became his educational institute.

In 1906, Bartók and Kodály published a collection of folksongs. Bartók’s journey into exploring Hungarian peasant music actually began around 1905. Arguably, his greatest compositions are his six string quartets.

Bartók enjoyed incorporating folk music into his compositions. Two composers that undoubtedly had an influence on his style include Liszt and Stravinsky.

An Amazing Bartók Fact

Bartók was tough to the end. Even in failing health (he had leukemia towards the end), he managed to write his amazing Concerto for Orchestra, a work commissioned by the Koussevitzky Foundation.
