Description

First-ever urtext edition of Bartók's Mikrokosmos - Volume 3 (comprises books 5 and 6 of the original edition) Béla Bartók's Mikrokosmos is one of the key works of 20th-century piano music. The repertoire comprises educational pieces 'from the very first beginning' as well as concert literature, thus making this work an indispensable companion to piano lessons.
The work is now available for the first time as urtext edition in three volumes, with each volume containing two of the six volumes of the original edition. The musical text was critically examined on the basis of the sources and could be corrected in many details. Furthermore, the edition contains some previously unpublished pieces and early versions. Educationally very revealing are the versions of several pieces which Bartók arranged specially for the lessons of his son Peter and which are printed in the appendix of the volumes. The edition is completed by notes on study and interpretation based on the sources and a glossary of unusual expression markings.

• In three volumes as originally envisaged by Bartók

• With hitherto unpublished pieces

• With Bartók's complete notes on all pieces

Reviews

The Wiener Urtext edition undoubtedly takes the crown as the most scholarly and comprehensive version, (...) and the additional essays, pieces and comments from the composer certainly make this the “must-have” version for teachers and scholars alike.
Andrew Eales, pianist and teacher
https://pianodao.com/2018/04/20/which-mikrokosmos/ (April 2018)

This new reprint of old favourites comes complete with comments on each piece by the composer thus throwing new light on piano lessons at all levels as well as aiding students to become extremely erudite with the comprehensive “Notes on Study and interpretation” that are included in these handsome volumes.

Piano Journal, Issue 111/2017 (Nadia Lasserson)

Wiener Urtext’s superb three-volume edition (as Bartok originally divided them) is superior. (...)
