Rare Bartók

Béla Bartók
(1881-1945)

Rhapsody #1
Rhapsody #2
Andante for Violin & Piano
Piano Quintet

György Pauk, violin
Jenö Jandó, piano
Kodály Quartet
Naxos 8.550886 66:37

The rhapsodies for violin and piano, based on folk dances, are familiar from their versions for violin and orchestra. The rarity is the piano quintet, a 42-minute work from early in Bartók's career. His models include Richard Strauss, Brahms and Dvořák but with unmistakable influences of Hungarian dance. Even if you find later Bartók daunting, admirers of those composers will find much to enjoy.
