Allegro Barbaro: Béla Bartók and Hungarian Modernity 1905 -1920

Béla Bartók: 1881 - 1945

Allegro Barbaro: Béla Bartók and Hungarian Modernity 1905 -1920
PARIS  •  Musée d'Orsay  •  Ongoing

The title of the exhibition, Allegro barbaro, is a tribute to the piano score written by the young Hungarian composer Béla Bartók (1881 - 1945) in 1911. It aims to revive, one hundred years on, the rich dialogue that existed between the arts in Hungary on the eve of the 20th century.

With around one hundred paintings from public collections in Hungary and from private collections, including numerous documents relating to the young Bartók and to the musicians, composers, writers, poets, philosophers and psychoanalysts in his circle (musical scores, photographs, films, archive recordings, etc), the exhibition aims to revive this rich dialogue between music and the arts from early 20th century Hungary.

Thus, accompanied by Bartók’s music, this exhibition takes the visitor on a historical tour among artworks that share the rhythms of Bartók’s vehement, percussive scores.
