The six string quartets by Béla Bartók( )

157 editions published between 1956 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 2,527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The string quartets of Béla Bartók occupy a central position in the classical repertoire of the twentieth century. Not only are they a milestone in the evolution of the quartet literature, but, along with those by Haydn and Beethoven, they provide an overview of their composer's output at all the main junctures of his career. The First quartet is a convincing amalgam of influences, notably Strauss and Debussy, the Second quartet more introspective, while the Third and Fourth quartets contain the most 'difficult' music of the six. The Fifth is the most approachable, while the Sixth is permeated by a sense of dread and resignation at the approach of World War Two. These masterpieces truly offer the range and depth of a lifetime's creative experience."--Program notes
Violin concertos nos. 1 and 2 by Béla Bartók( )

72 editions published between 1961 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 2,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the great works of the twentieth century, Bartok's Violin Concerto No. One and Two; has virtually eclipsed his first effort in the genre, written thirty years earlier. However, the youthful work, inspired by his passionate, unrequited love for the young violinist Stefi Geyer and rediscovered long after the composer's death, deserves to be rediscovered. Isabelle Faust's deep connection to Bartok's music inspired her to explore a variety of original sources and more
Turkish folk music from Asia Minor by Béla Bartók( )

27 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in English and Turkish and held by 1,856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a substantial and thorough musicological analysis of Turkish folk music. It reproduces in facsimile Bartók's autograph record of eighty seven vocal and instrumental peasant melodies of the Yürük Tribes, a nomadic people in southern Anatolia. Bartók's introduction includes his annotations of the melodies, texts, and translations and establishes a connection between Old Hungarian and Old Turkish folk music. Begun in 1936 and completed in 1943, the work was Bartók's last major essay. The editor, Dr. Benjamin Suchoff, has provided an historical introduction and a chronology of the various manuscript versions. An afterword by Kurt Reinhard describes recent research in Turkish ethnomusicology and gives a contemporary assessment of Bartók's field work in Turkey. Appendices prepared by the editor include an index of themes compiled by computer. Originally published in 1976. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

Den norske fiolinisten Elise Båtnes spilte allerede som 12-åring fiolin på en måte som trollbandt det norske folk. Hun var den første av våre helt unge fiolintalenter, og fikk mye oppmerksomhet i veldig ung alder. Men etter at hun som 15-åring ga ut "Fra Elise", har det vært relativt stille på platefronten. Men i mellomtiden har hun vært aktiv orkestermusiker i tillegg til kammermusiker bl.a. i Vertavokvartetten. Nå kommer hun for fullt tilbake i rampelyset som solist med ny soloutgivelse. Sammen med pianisten Håvard Gimse har hun spilt inn fire verker av den ungarske komponisten Béla Bartók; "Andante for fiolin og piano"(1902), "Sonate for fiolin og piano"(1903), "Ungarske folkesanger for fiolin og piano"(1934/1954) og "Sonate for solo fiolin"(1944)

The shining by Stanley Kubrick( Visual )

28 editions published between 1979 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stanley Kubrick directs this chilling adaptation of the Stephen King shocker. Seeking solitude in order to write a novel, Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) takes a job as an off-season caretaker at the remote Overlook Hotel in Colorado. Eager to get started, Jack disregards warnings that the isolation drove a former caretaker mad, and moves into the massive resort with his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and son Danny (Danny Lloyd). But Danny has a supernatural gift which makes him aware of an evil lurking in the hotel, and sure enough, as winter storms cut the hotel off from civilisation, Jack gradually becomes murderously insane
