Biography

Béla Bartók, the great master in 20th century modernity

The great master in 20th century modernity, Béla Bartók, began music with his mother when he was six. A child prodigy, he first made himself known as a pianist playing Franz Liszt’s Sonata in B in 1901. Strongly influenced by Richard Strauss and Richard Wagner, his first compositions conducted by Hans Richter, were the symphonic poems where late Romanticism counterbalanced national folklore.
