This Sunday Adam Kent performs music by Unitarian composers Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) and Béla Bartók (1881-1945) to complement our service devoted to Unitarian Faith. Both composers were gifted pianists who created a substantial body of work for the instrument. In addition, the Norwegian Grieg and the Hungarian Bartók frequently sought inspiration in the folk music of their respective regions of Europe, casting an orally transmitted tradition in the harmonic and stylistic language of their eras.
