The editor has selected seventeen of the the forty-two pieces in the 1909 version of Béla Bartók’s seminal work, For Children, Volume One. These selections were chosen as a result of the editor’s teaching experiences with this music: pieces that are both pedagogically advantageous for the teacher, and the most enjoyed by students.

Although Bartók’s intention was to write a set of pieces for young people, the charm and depth of these masterful works makes them equally appealing to students of all ages and levels. For Children has been played in concert and recorded by great pianists such as György Sándor, Zoltán Kocsis, Géza Anda, Menahem Pressler, and June de Toth. There is also a recording available on YouTube of Béla Bartók himself playing a selection of pieces from For Children in a 1945 radio broadcast.
