Clever arrangements for two guitars of Bartok's "For Children" piano pieces that will enhance the literature for guitar tuition

Composer: Bela Bartok
Arranger: Siegfried Steinkogler
Format: Performing Score
Instrumentation: Two Classical Guitars

Bela Bartok's "For Children" is one of the best known pedagogical works for piano teachers of the twentieth century, second only perhaps to the same composer's "Mikrokosmos". It was based firmly on the huge number of folk songs he collected, recorded and studied with his colleague Zoltan Kodaly. At the time, Bartok was offering something very new to piano teachers and their students.

Siegfried Steinkogler became acquainted with "For Children" at the beginning of his guitar studies and, from them, learnt a great deal about melody and harmonisation. He has chosen 38 of the original 79 pieces to offer in arrangements for the guitar. They are presented with helpful fingerings, technical solutions and aids to familiarize the younger students with common notations. For beginners, ten of the pieces are played exclusively in the first position before a gently increasing level of difficulty helps the player broaden their skills.
