For Children and The First Term at the Piano represent Béla Bartók’s commitment to music education in Hungary, but also draw on the research into folk-song he did together with Zoltán Kodály. These original Hungarian songs and progressive pieces are presented with great clarity, preserving authentic rhythms and character with transparent and sometimes deceptively simple accompaniments. Award-winning Hungarian pianist Lajos Kertész is part of the tradition from which Bartók himself emerged, and he includes Kodály amongst his teachers. This is the second of four volumes of Bartók’s piano music.
