The book collects new work by leading scholars and important new voices on BartÃ³k. While each essay can be read independently, together they provide a coherent view of BartÃ³k's life and work. The book includes integrative theoretic-analytical approaches to BartÃ³k's musical language and studies of his system of composition from its early stages to maturity. It also includes explorations of BartÃ³k's folk-music materials in connection with his fieldwork, transcription techniques, classification methodology, and compositional influences. Many of the chapters examine the broad historical, philosophical, and cultural questions intimately linked to BartÃ³k's work.
Anyone with an interest in BartÃ³k or in serious music in the twentieth century will find BartÃ³k Perspectives an invaluable resource and guide.
