Bartók: Allegro barbaro

In stock and typically ships within 1 business day.


Composed in 1910, No. 11, Bartók's Allegro barbaro is one of his best-known and most popular works for piano. The composer himself enjoyed performing it in concerts, and recorded it several times. The recording from 1929, which he referred to as the "authentic recording", contains very interesting divergences from the printed version as far as articulation, tempo and even the number of ostinato measures are concerned.
