Bela Bartok: Sonata for Two Pianos & Percussion - La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest

5/23/2016; 31 minutes

Bela Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos & Percussion grew out the composer's interest in the piano as a percussive rather than a lyrical instrument. Though rarely performed, since it requires the unusual combination of two superb pianists and two virtuoso percussionists, the Sonata is considered one of Bartok's most individualistic and expressive works.
