About

An all Bartók programme featuring one of the leading violinists – Gidon Kremer – and one of the world's leading viola players – Yuri Bashmet. Accompanied by the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Pierre Boulez.

Béla Bartók's Dance Suite is an orchestral work composed in 1923 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the union between Buda, Pest and Óbuda. At that time, three composers were commissioned new scores: Béla Bartók composed his Dance Suite, Erno Dohnányi composed the Festival Overture and Zoltán Kodály composed his Psalmus Hungaricus. Rejecting any kind of nationalism, Bartók draws freely his inspiration from Romanian, Arabian and Hungarian folk music for his piece.
