Bela Bartok, Major and Minor (MK2)

Bela bartok

Béla Bartók

As one of the later selections in the second volume of Mikrokosmos, “Major and Minor” offers students considerable challenges. The two most notable aspects are Bartók’s simultaneous use of major and minor keys as well as the specific and demanding articulations. Being aware of the mode of each hand is necessary for keeping track of the numerous accidentals. The sforzandos, accents, and complicated slurs also increase the difficulty.

Publisher InformationEdit

Mikrokosmos is available through Boosey and Hawkes.
