The Violin Concerto, Verbunkos, and Hungary on the Eve of World War II

(p.218) Six Tradition Restored
Bartók, Hungary, and the Renewal of Tradition

University of California Press

This chapter examines the political connections of Béla Bartók's European works, composed on the eve of World War 2. It explains that these works, which include the Violin Concerto, are notoriously difficult to relate to the political tensions in Hungary at the time of their composition. It analyzes the events in the early 1930s to understand Bartók's relationship to the conditions in the later part of the decade and relates these events to the musical details of the Violin Concerto.

Keywords:   Béla Bartók, Violin Concerto, political tensions, Hungary, World War 2
