  • July 15, 2008 Maybe Bartok's best piano work

    From the brash, banging and eccentric "From Drums and Pipes," to the incredible outdoor extravaganza with chirping bugs and crickets of the "Musiques Nocturnes," this set really could be the most interesting of *all* of Bartok's piano music, rivaling "Allegro Barbaro" as the very top, and I've been...

    studying almost all of his piano works for comparison.

    In addition to my earlier statement about the music, here is my view about this edition. Basically, the Out of Doors suite (Szabadban Szvít) comes in two editions: the original edition by Universal, of which this Boosey & Hawkes edition is a copy, and the edition by Péter Bart...

    ók. From this Boosey & Hawkes edition Hungarian (and other language) names of pieces have been left out. Worse, the footnotes to 'The night's music' ('Az északa zenéje') are lost, because of the large copyright notice. But the meaning of these explanatory footnotes is clear from the score anyway. They deal with arppegio before or after the beat. A better edition is the nineties edition by Péter Bartók, but this one is much more expensive. Some edition split the work still in two volumes, which is expensive and does not seem necessary to me. Overall, I am happy I bought this edition.

  • March 15, 2006 Modern, yet appealing and accesible

    This suite of five pieces features many aspects of Bartók: rythms are very important as well as sound effects; there is little melody and the piano is used as a percussion instrument. Although not extremely difficult, Bartók had a vision for this music and Bartók did not...

    shun any technical difficulties to achieve this vision - what about a double thrill (over a third) in the left hand? This music provides a nice break from the music of the Romantic era we hear so (too) much. For instance, the fourth piece is a 'nocturne', but how far it is from Chopin's! I am surprised this suite isn't known bette. Even among Bartók's works it is less known.
