The Last Century

Bela Bartok XIV.

Along with Franz Liszt, Barók is considered the greatest Hungarian composer. He was one of the key figures in the last century’s classical music, but he was also crucial for Hungarian folk music. Every first Thursday of the month, Concertzender will broadcast his music.
