Product Description:
After the Storm: The American Exile of Bela Bartok Video(VHS/DVD). When B?la Bart?k fled to New York in 1940, he carried his love of folk melodies to Columbia University, where he became a research fellow studying Serbo-Croatian music. In this timeless program, friends and associates—including Yehudi Menuhin and the late Sir Georg Solti—join Bart?k’s sons Peter and B?la, Jr., to reflect on the Hungarian composer’s last five years, in which he wrote the Concerto for Orchestra, one of his greatest compositions. In the words of the English newspaper The Guardian, this documentary is "an oddly affecting portrait of a composer who, they say, rarely smiled and spoke little, but—in the words of Georg Solti—had the aura of a holy man." (76 minutes)
