Bartók: The wooden prince
According to Béla Balázs’s story the two young person’s love can only fullfil at the expense of serious struggles. With the Fairy’s spell the Nature’s force hinders them so they can not be together until they defecate from those phoney externals that overlie their true values. Bartók’s music lifts this instructive tale to a philosophical level in wich we reach pure love through the painful self-observation.
