    Default Bartok pieces on this website

    Hi everyone,
    This has been driving me insane . I cannot identify the Bartok pieces on the following pages:
    http://www.bartokmuseum.hu/memorialhouse2.html
    http://www.bartokmuseum.hu/index.html

    I assume they are Bartok, though I've never heard them before. I've been searching every recording and sheet music I can get my hands on, but no luck. I'd appreciate any help!

    It sounds like they both could be from Mikrokosmos but you need a pianist to help you here.

    Thanks, I thought so too, but can't seem to find them there either.

    Thumbs up Mikrokosmos

    ^^^^^^
    Not a pianist, but a pretty resourceful Internet Surfer and Finder of Things...

    I'm pretty certain that these are all selections from Mikrokosmos, which consists of 153 piano pieces of increasing difficulty in 6 volumes.

    For example, the on the first link you provided (the memorialhouse2 page), the second piece is a selection from No. 97 "Notturno" (this youtube link is not a stellar performance, but at least enough to identify the piece). Based on the filename of the audio playing on that page, I believe that the first sample on the same page is probably from No. 138 "Bagpipe Music," but I have not verified this.

    In the second link (the index page), again based on the filename and unconfirmed, I believe the piece is also from Mikrokosmos, No. 109 "From the Island of Bali."

    I will try to verify the other two selections, but given that the first checked out, I'd say it's about 99% likely that they are also correct.

    EDIT: CONFIRMED by examination of the sheet music.

    Ah thank you so much! I guess I didn't rifle long enough through the mikrokosmos!
