Description - Bartok for Piano by David Yeomans

This chronological listing of more than 400 separate pieces and movement presents in practical and convenient form essential information about each of Bartok's piano works: the year of publication, the various editions in which it has been published, its timing, the level of difficulty from both a technical and an interpretative standpoint, and bibliographical references to it. To this basic material David Yeomans adds pertinent quotations from Bartok and other authorities, a discussion of the original folk material when applicable, a musical analysis, suggestions for performance, and comments on Bartok's own recordings of the work. An introductory chapter traces Bartok's career as a concert pianist and a piano teacher and includes his own performance directives for the interpretation of his piano music. Appendices contain listings of Bartok's solo piano works in order of technical and musical difficulty, the major publishers of his works, editions and transcription by Bartok of other composer's works, and teaching editions and collections of Bartok's piano music. This volume should be of interest to teachers, students, and professionals performers when planning courses of study and concerts.
