Bartók: The Miraculous Mandarin: Suite No. 2/Hungarian Peasant Songs CD / Album

CD / Album

Description

Bartók's `The Miraculous Mandarin' (published as `A Pantomime in One Act') was composed at a time of violent unrest in Hungary. The Soviet Hungarian Republic had collapsed in 1919 and was replaced by an ultra-nationalist regime which persecuted communists, Jews and leftists and left over 1,500 dead and thousands imprisoned without trial. It is against this bloody political and social backdrop that the composer, recovering from Spanish Flu, set about a musical depiction of Lengyel's `pantomime grotesque'. Bartók was spared service in World War I after failing several medicals. He spent the war years collecting folk songs and some of these provided material for the 'Hungarian Peasant Songs', which he returned to in 1933 and orchestrated.
