Bartok Piano Quartet in C Minor

Post by Belle » Sat Mar 04, 2017 4:37 am

I've just heard this work, composed by Bartok at age 17, and for the life of me I thought it was by Brahms. It was just played on BBC Radio 3 and I was shocked to hear it and to learn it is so rarely recorded. There's only this brief excerpt on U-Tube - perhaps it's available on Spotify:

From what I remember of my studies, Bartok's three big influences were R. Strauss, Debussy, and Brahms.
If I could tell my mom and dad
That the things we never had
Never mattered we were always ok
Getting ready for Christmas day
--Paul Simon
