Dates of existence
Béla Bartók was born in 1881 in Nagyszentmiklós (today known as Sânnicolau Mare), Hungary. He gave his first concert at the age of six and went on to study music at Pressburg (today Bratislava) at the Conservatory in Vienna, and at the Royal Hungarian Music Academy in Budapest, where he became professor in 1907.
In addition to his educational career, he lead investigations into Hungarian, Rumanian, and Slovak folk music, and called for them to be recorded. His musical compositions earned him an international reputation and he embarked upon several worldwide tours during the 1920s.
In 1931, he joined the Permanent Committee on Arts and Letters of the IIIC. He was also a member of the Hungarian Committee of Intellectual Cooperation. Having emigrated to the United States in 1940, he died in 1945 in New York.
