Dear Bartok family,
Just finished watching the tv program about Bartok narrated by Peter Bartok made me think of the numerous Bela Bartok Choir festivals in Hungary. Having participated made me realize that he will never be forgotten as often times I found myself humming the songs whether it’s a lullaby or for comfort. It’ll sure be passed down to the following generations. Out of sight but not out of mind . Thank you for the sentimental memories. Judith

His heart was rare...a true rare gem. I wish he knew just how much I loved and appreciated him. I will forever appreciate him for his help when my parents passed away....but again...his heart was the most memorable connection I had with him.
My son Matthew Béla was born this year on your birthday...my brother told me that he shared the news with you. That made me so happy.
Rest In Peace dear cousin. This world was incredibly lucky to have you ❤️🙏🏽

We are so sorry to hear of Peter's death, and we send our sincere condolences. All of us here at Historic Saranac Lake are grateful to have known Peter.
Each year, people from around the world come to tour the Bartók Cabin in Saranac Lake, where Peter's father spent the last summer of his life. As we tour the cabin, we tell stories that Peter shares in his book, "My Father" and in the documentary film, "After the Storm." Peter's first-hand accounts bring the history to life.
We are thankful for all Peter's support over the years and for his tireless work to preserve his father's legacy. Of the many books about Béla Bartók, "My Father" will always be our favorite.

It was a pleasure talking many times to Peter Bartok while Mary Hotaling and I raised funds to resurrect the cabin that his father, Bela Bartok lived in during his summer stay in Saranac Lake in 1945. One day a surprise generous check arrived from Peter which allowed us to complete our project. Upon our opening event,
a lovely flower arrangement arrived from him explaining that he was unable to attend in person. Since 2003, many musicians and historians have visited the cabin which Peter helped restore to its original simplicity. Historic Saranac Lake is very grateful to him.
