The genesis and genius of Bartók's Concerto was mingled with his love for
Stefi Geyer. As Hungarian Tristan pursuing his Isolde, he sounds allusions to
Wagner's paean of unfulfilled love. In transposing the ideal into the real,
Bartók enlists folk sources voicing pristine truths of peasants. While
biography and Tristan allusions supply the keys to Stefi's Concerto, the
Tristan grief motif serves as bridge from idealized romance to the pentatonic
simplicity of peasant realism. In these tensions private love and public
life, and esoteric romance and raw worldliness are provoked and reconciled.
The rise and fall of living romance and its musical mirroring against peasant
scales and rhythms is background to 'Tristan' ruling a score that incites and
resolves the clash of two conflicting worlds
