About This Item

Completed in 1909, Bartók's String Quartet No. 1 in a minor, Sz. 52, was inspired by the composer's love for Hungarian violinist Stefi Geyer; it seems that Ms. Geyer, however, did not return Bartók's sentiments. In the opening bars of the slow first movement, he quotes from his first violin concerto. The contrapuntal nature of the movement led it to be compared to fhe fugal techniques of Beethoven. By the third movement, Bartók's more familiar, folk-inspired style is evident.

This edition contains parts for two violins, viola, and cello (no score), and is edited by Paolo Borciani. Published by the International Music Company.

Difficulty: 6
