Béla Viktor János Bartók (1881 – 1945) was a Hungarian composer, pianist and ethnomusicologist. Considered as one of the most important composers of the 20th century; and, together with Liszt, undoubtedly Hungary's greatest composer.
Bartók's collection and analytical study of folk music guided much of his work. He was one of the founders of comparative musicology, which later became ethnomusicology. Best known for his piano works, his compositions for string instruments, woodwind, and vocal settings of Hungarian Folk songs. Find it all on Musicroom.
