Four exceptional musicians - including one of Hungary's leading young artists - assemble in Inner Temple's elegant Parliament Chamber to celebrate the centenary of Béla Bartók's first visit to London, which was arranged by Peter Warlock. (This piece of London's history is commemorated by the statue of Bartók outside South Kensington tube station, near to where he stayed).
Tonight's luxurious programme explores the worlds of the two composers, featuring songs by Britten and Warlok, and works for violin & piano by Debussy and Bartok. Folk and dance-infused music includes Warlock's ever-popular Capriol Suite. And Libby Burgess & James Cheung also put Inner Temple's Steinway through its paces in a number of Hungarian Dances by Brahms.
Barátság means friendship in Hungarian.
