From the Publisher

The Definitive Bartók Edition brings together selected highlights from Béla Bartók’s extensive pedagogical piano catalogue for the very first time. Featuring repertoire from For Children, Mikrokosmos, Ten Easy Pieces, Romanian Christmas Carols, Fourteen Bagatelles and others, each volume has been compiled to be steadily progressive to aid learning. An accompanying audio CD features demonstration performances by Iain Farrington. THE DEFINITIVE BARTÓK EDITION - press reviews "The Definitive Barók Edition is now a clear first choice for playrs everywhere, providing an illuminating, imaginative and well-rounded selection of his educational and easier pieces." - PIANODAO.COM "For those who do not own the complete works of Béla Bartók, the books offer an excellent compromise and the CDs of all the selected works performed by Iain Farrington provide the icing on the cake to make these books unmissable on everyone's shelves" - EPTA PIANO JOURNAL
