Bartok: Piano Works
Format: COMPACT DISC
Given Bartók’s expressive variety it would be not excessive to say that his tormented works represents the keystone of the entire XXth Century. A technical complexity joins a very varied musical language which often bear a strong influence from the popular music as well as from Liszt and Debussy and the ornamentation of Couperin. We could define Bartók as a man of a thousand faces and with this album we are trying to reveal some-ones.
