Hungarian Peasant Songs / Mikrokosmos

Hungarian Peasant Songs / Mikrokosmos by Bela Bartok
Released: Apr 1993
Label: Naxos
Bartok started writing this pedagogy of piano performance for his young son. The basis of the tracks here come from his own fieldwork in early 20th century Hungarian villages, where he went from town to town collecting the songs of the most ancient folk. Pianist Szokolay plays these rhythmically complex devils with wide romantic gestures.
