Coco does Bartok

Yes, Coco really does seem to have an intuitive appreciation for the music of Bela Bartok.

Here she is, in a New Jersey parking lot, carefully listening to Bartok's String Quartet No. 6. The last of his quartets, No. 6 was written in his native Hungary in 1939, not long before Bartok fled the pro-Nazi Hungary for the U.S. (where he died destitute in 1945).

(The YouTube link is here.)

The performance Coco is listening to is performed by the Alexander String Quartet.

If you watch patiently, I think you'll agree that Coco has a unique way of interacting with the music.

(Not to brag on my dog's behalf, but not every pit bull has such exquisite taste....)

Coco does indeed understand Bela Bartok's grating music. Unfortunately, I can only wiggle my ears but have been known to put my hands on them when forced to listen to Bartok at concert.
I much prefer bar talk to Bartok.
