In this programme, we can take a glimpse into the relationships of two couples. The Piano Concerto No.3 is Bartók's last completed work, dedicated to his wife, the pianist Ditta Pásztory. It is a final will, in a way, integrating several elements of Bartók's music: the knowledge of the past, the importance of folk music, the central role of rhythm, music's historical continuity and the ability to move on. In the movement Adagio religioso, we can also observe how a composer not considered religious contemplates transcendence in the shadow of death. The plot of Sheherazade also relates the story of a couple: Sheherazade’s husband decided to have all his wives killed, but this wife of his keeps telling him one tale after another, capturing the king’s attention. Step by step, she tames his heart, silencing his search for revenge. The movements are only loosely linked to the stories of the 1001 Nights; the music awakens, instead, its listener’s imagination.
