Allegro Barbaro. Béla Bartók and Hungarian Modernity (1905-1920), exhbition at the Musée d'Orsay
Allegro Barbaro. Béla Bartók et la modernité hongroise (1905-1920)
From Monday, October 21 2013 to Sunday, January 26 2014
Hungarian culture in Paris.
Continuing the trend at the Musée d'Orsay of dedicating to the great names of modern music - Mahler, Debussy - this exhibition is an opportunity for the French public to discover the world of Bartók (1881-1945), to a particularly rich period within Hungarian cultural and artistic history.
Hungarian music and painting in the early twentieth century, come together in a spirit of rupture and renewal. Pioneers of the European avant-garde, they invented in just a few years an autonomous and original language, a language of modernity tinged with national tradition.
With one hundred paintings from Hungarian public collections and private collections, along with numerous documents relating to the young Bartók and musicians, composers, writers, poets, philosophers and psychoanalysts of his entourage, the exhibition aims to revive this fruitful dialogue between music and the arts in Hungary during the early twentieth century.
