Notes & Reviews:

Bartók went beyond national boundaries for inspiration, as can be heard in the Transylvanian, Romanian and Slovak folk material featured on this disc. This album is Volume I of a 4 part project: the complete works for violin of great Hungarian composer Bartók. This disc offers early works and transcriptions. Later volumes include violin sonatas, the solo sonata and concertos. Excellent performances by Hungarian violinist Zalai (formerly names Szalai) and Balog.
