In the first half of the 20th century, Béla Bartók was one of the principal ambassadors of Hungarian music. He was influenced by the folk music of Eastern Europe and strove to break the confines of the traditions of Western Classical music, in order to create harmonies, rhythms and performance practices that were more relevant to his turbulent era.

While the two sonatas differ in their relation to the Classical model, the influence of Eastern Europe can be heard in both: the arpeggios at the beginning of No.1 imitate the sound of the Hungarian cimbalom, and there is evidence of Hungarian folk music in its dance-like finale as well as in the hor lunga-style melody of the Romanian peasant music in No.2, which recurs several times throughout the piece. The two Rhapsodies similarly share the influence; the slow 'Lassú' movement of No.1, for example, uses an exotic Transylvanian melody followed by a much more cheerful 'Friss' movement. Exoticism returns in the 'Lassú' of No.2, combined with a hint of melancholy, which is counteracted by the riotous dance of the 'Friss' thanks to its improvisatory nature and use of six separate tunes.

The disc features Antal Zalai, praised by Igor Oistrakh as 'an exceptional violinist who has a perfect technique, beautiful large tone, real musical finesse and maturity as well as a noble personality'. Joining him is József Balog, one of the most celebrated pianists of his generation and winner of the 2005 Annie Fischer Award.
