Béla Bartók (1881-1945) was a Hungarian composer, pianist, and ethnomusicologist. He is considered one of the most important representatives of modernism. Through his collection and analytical study of folk music, he was one of the founders of comparative musicology, which later became ethnomusicology.
I have chosen to feature the 18 pieces that Bartók chose for the revised edition of this book. They make great quick studies in “unusual sounds” (spend about a week on each piece).
