Confronting Stravinsky

(p.119) Four Tradition Challenged
Bartók, Hungary, and the Renewal of Tradition

David E. Schneider

University of California Press

This chapter discusses Béla Bartók's endorsement of nationalism and patriotism in his works and his comparison with composer Igor Stravinsky. It explains that Bartók's familiarity with Stravinsky's music as well as his willingness to endorse a neoclassical stance allowed him to consider both himself and Stravinsky as representatives of a similar artistic “evolution”. He also justified his own music by comparing it to that of his celebrated contemporary and compared Stravinsky's assimilation of elements of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music with his own incorporation of elements from folk music.

Keywords:   Béla Bartók, nationalism, patriotism, Igor Stravinsky, folk music
