Bartok's Piano concerto No 3

Here are some pictures of HO scale motor cars.

Bartok: Piano Concerto No 3:

Spent much of the day trying to get to grips with this piece. Much less accessible than No 1 but one felt that it was a mightier and subtler work that would bear exploration. By "exploration", I mean playing it again and again until I like it! By the fourth rendition, I was a convert. The opening bars of the second movement sounded worryingly like Aaron Copland!

Actually, Bartok visited Glasgow. I think, twice.
