qThis deeply researched biography of BAcla BartA³k (1881a1945) provides a more comprehensive view of the innovative Hungarian musician than ever before. David Cooper traces BartA³kas 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 Europeas political and cultural tumult affected BartA³kas work, travel, and reluctant emigration to the safety of America in his final years. Cooper illuminates BartA³kas personal life and relationships, while also expanding what is known about the influence of other musiciansaRichard Strauss, ZoltAin KodAily, and Yehudi Menuhin, among many others. The author also looks closely at some of the composeras 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, ...
