qThis deeply researched biography of BAcla BartA³k (1881a€“1945) provides a more comprehensive view of the innovative Hungarian musician than ever before. David Cooper traces BartA³ka€™s international career as an ardent ethno-musicologist and composer, teacher, and pianist, while also providing a detailed discussion of most of his works. Further, the author explores how Europea€™s political and cultural tumult affected BartA³ka€™s work, travel, and reluctant emigration to the safety of America in his final years. Cooper illuminates BartA³ka€™s personal life and relationships, while also expanding what is known about the influence of other musiciansa€”Richard Strauss, ZoltAin KodAily, and Yehudi Menuhin, among many others. The author also looks closely at some of the composera€™s actions and behaviors which may have been manifestations of Asperger syndrome. The book, in short, is a consummate biography of an internationally admired musician.qOtto Gombosi claimed that the work performed was not, in fact, the a#39;Waldsteina#39; Sonata, but Beethovena#39;s Sonata op. 2 no. 3 in C major, ...
