BARTOK AND THE VIOLIN
Bartók gives us a hymn to love and indifference (for violinist Stefi Geyer) in his Violin Concerto nº1, whose score lay in a box until the death of its protagonists. Pirates, sacred woods and gods introduce us into Ravel’s oneiric world in his Daphnis et Chloé: impressionist musical colouring that will be set up against Stravinsky’s Suites, which are headed for Neo-classicism.
