Bartok World Competition

“Bartók was a prophet of the 20th century”

“Bartók was a prophet of the 20th century”

16 September 2019

Liszt Prize-winning pianist Kálmán Dráfi believes that anyone who can give an excellent performance of Bartók can play almost anything else and that therefore one of the greatest geniuses of the 20th century ought to receive a higher stature in the repertoires of Hungarian pianists.
