Bartok the Refugee –
A Study of Bartok’s Sixth Quartet

Béla Bartók wrote his last string quartet in 1939, while contemplating emigrating from Hungary—first to Switzerland, then to America—as a refugee. This music draws upon a venerable but widely misunderstood tradition of social protest, which resurfaces in the music of many other composers (notably
Shostakovich). The DaPonte String Quartet traces its provenance from Mozart, through late Beethoven, to Bartók.
