This book tells the intriguing story of Béla Bartók's Viola Concerto, a work left unfinished at his death in 1945. Drawing on interviews and documents that reveal previously unavailable information, it discusses the commission, the reconstruction by Tibór Sérly, events leading up to the premiere, its reception over the second half of the twentieth century, the revisions, and future possibilities.
