Mikrokosmos Vol. 5 - 153 Progressive Piano Pieces - Bela Bartok - Piano Boosey & Hawkes

Product Description
The definitive edition (1987) of the piano teaching classic. Includes anintroduction by the composer's son Peter Bartí_k. In 1945 Bela Bartok de scribed 'Mikrokosmos' as a cycle of 153 pieces for piano written for 'didactic' purposes, seeing them as a series of pieces in many different styles, representing a small world, or as the 'world of the little ones, the children'. Stylistically Mikrokosmos reflects the influence of folk music on Bartí_k's life and the rhythms and harmonies employed create music that is as modern today as when the cycle was written. The 153 pieces making up 'Mikrokosmos' are divided into six volumes arranged according to technical and musical difficulty.
