Written in 1911, this piece was Bartok's first large-scale independent piano composition, and the first time he used the piano this percussively. There are many shifts in moods and dynamics from ppp to ffff, and a strong emphasis on accents and a variety of touches. There are excellent performance notes and historic information included by Dr. Hinson.
