About this Recording

BARTÓK, B.: For Children, Vols. 3 and 4 / Romanian Christmas Songs (L. Kertész)

Béla Bartók’s For Children provides a sometimes athletic training ground for young pianists, using folk-songs he collected in the field together with Zoltán Kodály and retaining titles which refer to the social significance with which these songs were associated. The Romanian Christmas Carols are a prime example of such research, filled with sparkling rhythms and wide contrasts of seasonal sentiment. Acclaimed Hungarian pianist Lajos Kertész is steeped in the national traditions from which Bartók himself emerged, and he includes Kodály amongst his teachers. This is the third of four volumes of Bartók’s piano music.
