One fantastic work.One fantastic pianist

Mikrokosmos is really one fantastic didactic work . Bartók wrote one method very interesting because the student has one contact with the innovations of the musical language that was transformed at the beginning of the twentieth century . We have modal melodies , changing of bars , polytonality , etc. Normally the musical education forgets all this things. With Mikrokosmos we have this fantastic opportunity to make one “modernization” of piano and music for beginners .Bartók was one of the most important composers of the first half of his century. But he was too one very important teacher. The value of the music of Mikrokosmos is very high , even in the most simple parts of the work.
If I love Bartók as composer I must say that Jeno Jandó , one of the most important pianists in the world, respected what was written in accents, andamenti, articulation and expression. I listened the 6 books with the score. And I must say that Jandó made a very important and beautiful work. I admire this pianist for his recordings of the “adults” works of Bartók: the Out of Doors Suite , the Suite op. 14 , the Sonata etc. But this time he came really at a level never reached for his predecessors.
MIkrokosmos : one fantastic work played and recorded in a very high level. I’m really very happy after heard this beautiful record. Bravo Naxos. Bravo Jandó. And bravo for the didactic work of this great composer.
