Bartók: Works for Violin & Piano, Volume 2
Bartók: Hungarian Folk Tunes (7:41)
James Ehnes, violin; Andrew Armstrong, piano
Decades before World Music became an established category, Béla Bartók was roaming the Eastern European countryside, collecting folk tunes with fellow composer Zoltán Kodály. As violinist James Ehnes and pianist Andrew Armstrong demonstrate on this new recording, Bartók fashioned some vibrant and colorful arrangements from his folk journeys.
