It’s 1940 and Bartók goes into exile in the United States, taking with him his 44 duos for two violins, based on Hungarian, Slovakian, Serbian, Romanian or Arabian folk tunes, simple yet refined. Not a technical representation of his work, Compagnie Bacchus’s show is a sensitive approach to the composer, his research and musical ambitions. Bartók also reflects on the times, his political commitment, his opposition to Nazism, his attachment to his native land and his exile in New York as he encounters different individuals embodied by the two violinists who engage him and each other.
