The Musée d'Orsay Reveals Bartók and the Hungarian Avant-Garde

From 15 October 2013 to 05 January 2014

One of the 20th century's most innovative composers

After having already dedicated similar exhibitions to grand masters of modern classical music such as Mahler and Debussy, the Musée d'Orsay now brings the world of Béla Bartók to life. This exhibition not only reveals Bartók's music to an audience who maybe is unfamiliar with the avant-garde classical composer, it also illustrates a period in Hungarian culture that was particularly rich.

The exhibit, called 'Allegro Barbaro, Béla Bartók and Hungarian Modernity,' ranges from 1905 until 1920 and focuses on the music and paintings that came from Hungary during this time. This period is associated with a shift in several different paradigms, as the European avant-garde invented a language of its own that had never been used before. This language combined the spirit of modernity and the tenets of traditional nationalism.

In approximately 100 canvases borrowed from public Hungarian collections as well as from private collectors, spectators can discover Hungarian art from the early 20th century. In addition, documents telling the story of Bartók's personal life and his entourage are also an essential part of this event.

Through film, pictures and musical scores, visitors of the Musée d'Orsay can therefore explore the work and the cultural environment of one of the most innovative composers of the 20th century.
