Bartók Béla Viktor János

Béla Bartók (1881-1945) was a Hungarian composer who, along with Franz Liszt, is considered among the greatest Hungarian composers. Bartók is known for his passion and analytical studies of folk music and ethnomusicology (studying cultural as well as social aspects of people who make it).
Bartók's musical style reflects two trends that profoundly changed approach to composition in the 20th century. The breakdown of the diatonic system of harmony and the revival of national folk music as a primary source of inspiration. Bartók's folk music explorations went from Hungary to Balkans, Turkey and even Algeria, and, combined with modern techniques, created a new stream of modernism.
The most popular works of Béla Bartók - Concerto for Orchestra, Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, Cantata Profana, six string quartets and concertos for violin, viola and piano.
