Bartók & Baroque

What does Béla Bartók have to do the with harpsichord?


When he published his famous piano teaching method Mikrokosmos in 1940, he added in the foreword: "Some of the pieces can also be performed on the harpsichord."


Helga followed the remark and collected a selection from the Mikrokosmos, which she contrasted with works by baroque masters such as Johann Sebastian Bach, François Couperin, Domenico Scarlatti. Then in the 1920s, Béla Bartók studied intensely the styles of old masters from the 17th and 18th centuries, thus creating interactions in his own creative works.
