Béla Bartók: Orbit

Malcolm Gillies and Esa-Pekka Salonen explore Béla Bartók's world.

Malcolm Gillies discusses Bartók in relation to other key composers of his time such as Schoenberg
and Stravinsky, and questions whether Bartók was, in retrospect, a figure of artistic principle or one of compromise.
