Bela Bartok Overview

This biography covers the full range of the work of Béla Bartók (1881-1945), from his early explorations of Hungarian folklore to his Third Piano Concerto, composed on his deathbed in the United States. Illustrated throughout with contemporary photographs of people and events, the book brings a reclusive creator strikingly to life and explores inextricable links between Bartók's life, his music, and the turbulence of two world wars. Béla Bartók is part of Phaidon's successful 20th Century Composers series, which presents authoritative and engaging biographies of the great creative musicians of our time, augmented by striking visual material and essential reference information. This edition of the book features a whimsical new cover by Jean-Jacques Sempé, the world-renowned illustrator and cartoonist.
