More of Bartok's Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta, 3rd movement.
I know this is not make-out music, but it is really amazing.
Bartok conjures some very dark spirits with intelligence and wit. He never once loses his nerve and slips into sentimentality or cliche.
Lord knows some very very dark spirits flew around Bartok's native Hungary and throughout Europe in his lifetime. He had the courage to stare them down and lock them into brilliant works of music.
Here is the spirited Finale.
Sorry folks, but I think Bartok is so amazingly cool.
