Béla Bartók composed his four-volume series comprising short pieces for beginner pianists, For Children, between 1908 and 1910. It consists of folksong and nursery song arrangements; the first two volumes utilize Hungarian music and the latter two are of Slovak origin. Bartók revised the series during the last years of his life (1943 to 1945). This collection contains ten easy pieces from the third volume of For Children, arranged by Aladár Móži for violin and piano. All the pieces can be played in the first three positions. The texts of the arranged folksongs can be found at the end of the volume in the original Slovak along with German and Hungarian translations.

In 2015 we are launching a series entitled Bartók Transcriptions for Music Students to mark the 70th anniversary of the composer’s death. This involves reissuing our tried publications, and publishing some further, new transcriptions that fulfill in every respect the strict aesthetic demands of the earlier ones. We trust these publications will allow us to introduce still more music students to the realm of one of the great geniuses of 20th-century music.
