Blauwbaard's Burcht

Béla Bartók

'Duke Bluebeard's Castle is frighteningly beautiful.
In the space of an hour you are mercilessly plunged into the dark sides of the psyche.
It cannot be proven, but it is probable that the confrontation with the machinations which can make a hell of the relationships between men and women was not at all to Bartók's liking.'
Bente-Helene van Lambalgen
