I've just found Bartok's Children's pieces.

Two questions:

1. Did Bartok speak English? Many of those compositions seem to make sense in English if you know what I mean. If you say the English title the words seem to fit the music.

Like number 33 - 'Light The Way To My Love' just seems to be reiteration over and over of the words 'light the way to my love'. With perhaps a little artistic licence: 'light the wa-ay to my love'.

Am I inventing all of that? Or is that his language (Polish I think) is so similar the words fit there too, in that language?

And: 2. Is anyone prepared to put up a little audio file showing how they'd play any of the pieces?

Yes. He served in States as a translator for his second wife.
