This is a new edition of Béla Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances in its original scoring for Solo Piano. With fascinating background notes and unique imagery, this publication is essential for pianists interested in the work of the Hungarian composer. When Bartók was just 23 years old, he visited the Transylvanian town of Gerlicepuszta. Overhearing a lullaby sung by a teenage servant girl named Lidi Dósa, he quizzed her about it and noted it down. This was the beginning of a passion for folk music that would go on to change the course of the composer's life and work, while initiating the field of ethnomusicology. Romanian Folk Dances remains one of Bartók's most popular and enduring works, evoking the folk melodies combined with his own idiosyncratic harmonies and textures. Each of the six short pieces here is based on a traditional melody which Bartók penned during his travels. Newly and beautifully engraved, the notation includes fingering guidance throughout, while a specially-written introduction tells the story of the young composer and the intriguing backstory of this work. Songlist: - Stick Dance - Joc cu bâtă - Waistband Dance - Brâul - In One Spot - Pe loc - Dance From Butschum - Horn Dance - Buciumeana - Romanian Polka - Poargă Românească - Fast Dance - Mărunțel

This long-awaited, authoritative account of Bartók's compositional processes stresses the composer's position as one of the masters of Western music history and avoids a purely theoretical approach or one that emphasizes him as an enthusiast for Hungarian folk music. For Bèla Bartók, composition often began with improvisation at the piano. Làszló Somfai maintains that Bartók composed without preconceived musical theories and refused to teach composition precisely for this reason. He was not an analytical composer but a musical creator for whom intuition played a central role. These conclusions are the result of Somfai's three decades of work with Bartók's oeuvre; of careful analysis of some 3,600 pages of sketches, drafts, and autograph manuscripts; and of the study of documents reflecting the development of Bartók's compositions. Included as well are corrections preserved only on recordings of Bartók's performances of his own works. Somfai also provides the first comprehensive catalog of every known work of Bartók, published and unpublished, and of all extant draft, sketch, and preparatory material. His book will be basic to all future scholarly work on Bartók and will assist performers in clarifying the problems of Bartók notation. Moreover, it will be a model for future work on other major composers.
