Béla Bartók was only 22 in 1903 when he composed his symphonic poem entitled "Kossuth”. The piece is referred to as program music, evidencing the influence on Bartók of Richard Strauss, a composer he held in high regard. The ten closely related movements recount the events of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848-49.
Bartók composed the Dance Suite in 1923 in order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the union of Buda, Pest and Óbuda. The suite's six movements are based on musical motifs by peoples of the Danube region.
The compositions are conducted by Zoltán Kocsis, one of the performers most familiar with the Bartók oeuvre.
