Bartók’s innovative Mikrokosmos is a remarkable collection which introduces techniques necessary for performing contemporary music, from the simplest beginnings to the concert pieces of volume 6 (9.70178). Explorations of resonance, contrasting tonalities, modes and rhythms open up new worlds to aspiring musicians, while also providing valuable insights into folk-music and Bartók’s composing techniques. Award-winning Hungarian pianist Lajos Kertész includes Kodály amongst his teachers, and is a product of the national traditions from which Bartók himself emerged. This is the last of his four volumes of Bartók’s piano music.
