Bartók's music is of paramount importance for all Hungarian composers of the last hundred years: in the works of György Kurtág we also find open or hidden references to the great predecessor at several places. This transcription for piano duet of the first movement of Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, this large-scale fugue, can be considered a composer's study for understanding the work as well as an interpretation conveying Bartók's composition to the audience in a specific way. The transcription was made for György Kurtág Jr., the son of the composer György Kurtág.

This publication is printed on high-quality, age-resistant paper that is produced in an environmentally-friendly, climate-neutral manner using renewable raw materials.
