It is extremely hard for any new recording to compete with the stunning 1967 Berlin account that Argerich made with the Berliner Philharmoniker under Abbado… Lang Lang certainly equals the boldness, power and communicative quality of Argerich’s account. Under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle the Berliner Philharmoniker is highly persuasive and sympathetic. Not for the first time the woodwind excel - marvellous. - Michael Cookson; www.musicweb-international.com

Redefining Hungarian Music from Liszt to Bartók (repost)

Redefining Hungarian Music from Liszt to Bartók by Lynn M. Hooker
English | Dec 3, 2013 | ISBN: 0199739595 | 320 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

Some of the most popular works of nineteenth-century music were labeled either "Hungarian" or "Gypsy" in style, including many of the best-known and least-respected of Liszt's compositions. In the early twentieth century, Béla Bartók and his colleagues questioned not only the Hungarianness but also the good taste of that style. Bartók argued that it should be discarded in favor of a national style based in the "genuine" folk music of the rural peasantry.
Inside Bluebeard's Castle: Music and Drama in Béla Bartók's Opera

Inside Bluebeard's Castle: Music and Drama in Béla Bartók's Opera by Carl S. Leafstedt
English | Nov 4, 1999 | ISBN: 0195109996 | 254 Pages | PDF | 13 MB

This is the first book-length examination of Bartók's 1911 opera Duke Bluebeard's Castle, one of the twentieth century's enduring operatic works. Writing in an engaging style, Leafstedt adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the opera by introducing, in addition to music-dramatic analysis, a number of topics that are new to the field of Bartók studies. These new areas of critical and scholarly terrain include a detailed literary study of the libretto and a gender-focused analysis of the opera's female character, Judith.
