Description
The first four volumes of Mikrokosmos were written to provide study material for the beginner pianist - young or adult - and are intended to cover as far as possible most of the simple technical problems likely to be encountered in the early stages . The material in volumes 1-3 has been designed to be sufficient in itself for the first or first and second year of study.

The definitive edition (1987) of the piano teaching classic. Includes an introduction by the composer's son Peter Bartk.

In 1945 Bela Bartok described Mikrokosmos as a cycle of 153 pieces for piano written for "didactic" purposes, seeing them as a series of pieces in many different styles, representing a small world, or as the "world of the little ones, the children". Stylistically Mikrokosmos reflects the influence of folk music on Bartok's life and the rhythms and harmonies employed create music that is as modern today as when the cycle was written.

The 153 pieces making up Mikrokosmos are divided into six volumes arranged according to technical and musical difficulty.

Major teaching points highlighted in Mikrokosmos 1:
Unison melodies
Question and answer
Imitation and Inversion
Piano.
