Description

One of the great works of the 20th Century for solo violin. Written for Yehudi Menuhin in 1945, pushes violin technique to the boundaries. Presto. In this movement Bartok makes use of quartertones. Menuhin made his own arrangement of this claiming the quartertones were unnecessarily awkward. This performance is of the original quartertone notation which adds to the folkloric nature of the movement.
