Béla Bartók in Basel - January, 1938

from Béla Bartók Letters, pages 265-266:

As for the 2 piano + percussion sonata, its world-premier has been given in Basel 2 weeks ago. My wife and myself played the 2 pianos – it had a ‘tremendous’ success. Mrs. Bartók played very well- this was her first public appearance in a foreign country.
