The Reconstruction

The Reconstruction

A Critical Examination of the Work of Tibor Serly

(p.35) CHAPTER TWO The Reconstruction
Bartók's Viola Concerto

Donald Maurice

Oxford University Press

This chapter traces the story of the reconstruction of the concerto by Tibor Serly after firstly exploring any role that Zoltán Kodály may have had in this process. Serly's role is analyzed by reprinting his extended interview with Dr David Dalton in 1969, with annotated footnotes to provide a critical commentary. This is followed by Serly's own “Belated Account...” article of the actual reconstruction process he followed, and his “Measure by Measure Exposition of the Reconstruction of Béla Bartó's Viola Concerto”. This account is also accompanied by a critical commentary by Maurice. This commentary assesses the processes followed by Serly and identifies the successes and shortcomings of the decisions he made.

Keywords:   reconstruction, Tibor Serly, Zoltán Kodály, David Dalton, Belated Account, Measure by Measure Reconstruction, critical commentary, successes, shortcomings
