Julien Libeer and Alicja Gescinska on 'high and low art'

The debate about high and low art can sometimes get rather heated. In his second salon, Julien Libeer and philosopher Alicja Gescinska search for answers and nuances. And what music can better accompany their quest that of Béla Bartók? In Bartók’s work, the ‘high’ Viennese tradition goes hand in hand with the miniature works of art of 'low' folk music. And it’s precisely those multiple layers that make his music so fascinating.
