Béla Bartók in Budapest - 8 October, 1940

from Béla Bartók Letters, page 284:

And we also had a farewell concert in Budapest on October 8: I played Bach’s Concerto in A major, my wife Mozart’s (scarcely known) beautiful Concerto in F Major – this was her first solo appearance, and she played beautifully – then we played Mozart’s Concerto for 2 pianos, and finally I played from Mikrokosmos.
