(p.155) Conclusion
Bartók's Viola Concerto

This chapter summarizes the contents of the book and attention is drawn to the appendixes in the book, which introduce many documents and correspondence previously unavailable in the public domain. The issue of authenticity is addressed and it is suggested that in the future research in this study may assist a worthy craftsperson to produce a more authentic Bartók Viola Concerto, when the restrictions of copyright will allow the freedom of musical expression. It would require a composer thoroughly steeped in Bartók's compositional style and technique, who would dare to add both vertically and horizontally, to recompose, to revise, and to continue to refine the texture and orchestration until the result was consistently representative of Bartók at the height of his creative powers.
