Notes & Reviews:

The works on this release provide an excellent overview of how Bartok drew from folk music for inspiration. One can hear Hungarian, Slovak, and Romanian songs inside of the compositions presented on this album. Andreas Bach, one of today's outstanding pianists, performs the works on this album. "It is not possible to play Bartok's music in a more Hungarian way than that heard from the German pianist Andreas Bach." (Muzsikas)
