From Liszt to Bartók • 4.4

From Liszt to Bartók • 4.4

Bartók in Paris
  1. Bartók: Sonata No. 1 for Violin and Piano
  2. Ravel: Mother Goose (arrangement for string quintet by Péter Tornyai)
  3. Szymanowski: Song Cycle
  4. Stravinsky: Septet

“Only Schoenberg’s missing,” said eminent French musicologist and art historian Henry Prunières, editor-in-chief of the Revue Musicale, at a reception held in Paris in 1922 in honour of Bartók.

“Half the world’s premier composers were there, that is, Ravel, Stravinsky, Szymanowski, and a few notorious Frenchmen,” wrote Bartók to her mother a few days later. He also told her how they had to repeat the violin and piano sonata after dinner. Stravinsky, of course, liked the third movement best as being closest to him, while Ravel favoured the profound second movement; local critics declared the piece the most important composition to have been written for twenty years.

The other works performed at this concert are by composers who were present at this legendary evening.
