    Bartok is very heavy and his music is somewhat violent. Baroque, on the other hand, is very organised.

    In Bartok's piano concertos, as well. as in a number of his other works, there are frequently contrapuntal passages comparable to baroque music, especially that of J.S. Bach. The first movement of the second piano concerto comes immediately to mind, with its use of imitation and descending sequences. The finale of the third concerto is gigue-like and has at least one fugal passage.

    well, you can talk about math as a resource for developing technically perfect music, since both baroque and bartók's compositions are deeply related to math

    maybe not related...involved, or, well, what i'm trying to say is that they involve extenuant use of math and can also be understood by using math

    Please don't write conchertos...just concertos. The Bartok concertos are amazing and unique.

    YMMV. Bartók's concertos are not 'heavy'. They are astringent, emotion and drama without velvet tapestries, smoke pots or ichor. And that is their relationship with Bach's music.


    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    I was about to help, then I realized this thread was over 4 years old..... in any case, what an odd assignment, comparing Bartok concertos to Baroque concertos written 200 years before.

    [PHP]Bartok is very heavy and his music is somewhat violent. Baroque, on the other hand, is very organised.
