Bartók's "For Children" and other new Urtext editions
Dear Reader,
 
Advent and Christmas are special times for children. Béla Bartók’s classic work » "For Children" was written with young people in mind and introduces them to the magical world of the piano piece by piece. We are delighted to now be able to present these two volumes, which are an important contribution to piano pedagogy, in Urtext editions.
 
Perhaps you might like to give somebody this or one of our other Urtext editions as a special holiday gift …
 
With very best wishes
 
 

Dr. Wolf-Dieter Seiffert
Managing Director

Béla Bartók
For Children, Volume I
Editor: Vera Lampert, László Vikárius
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
Long before his famous "Mikrokosmos", Bartók composed a comprehensive collection of little piano pieces, entitled "For Children". Written in 1908-1911, its two volumes are based on Hungarian (volume I) and Slovakian (volume II) folk tunes respectively. Both are organised in ascending difficulty, from simple two-part pieces to Impressionistic miniatures, and they offer everything that children's hands can manage.

Johannes Brahms
Waltz op. 39 no. 15 - Original and simplified version
Editor: Katrin Eich, Fingering: Rolf Koenen
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
"Do you love Brahms?" The majority of music lovers will answer "yes", and they might be thinking of the Waltz op. 39 no. 15 - its gently rocking melody is one of Brahms's most famous inspirations. Both original versions of this popular miniature for piano solo are now offered by G. Henle Publishers in a practical, stand-alone Urtext edition.

Maurice Ravel
Introduction et Allegro for Harp, Flute, Clarinet and String Quartet
Editor: Peter Jost
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
In June 1905, Ravel told a friend: "I was terribly busy because of a piece for harp commissioned by the Érard company. I was able to finish it after a fashion, thanks to 8 days of dogged work and three sleepless nights". But the piece itself shows nothing of the haste in which it was written. In fact, it seems as if Ravel knew how to explore all the musical possibilities of the harp in this brief, but highly striking piece.
