Italienische Cembalo- und Orgelmusik aus dem 17. und 18. Jahrhundert
Under the title “Concert transcriptions of keyboard works by Italian baroque composers” the 11 volumes that form the material of this series were first published between 1926 and 1928. Béla Bartók made a prolonged study of the baroque masters, whose works frequently featured in his concert programmes also after 1926. Since the concert pieces that resulted from his reshaping of works by the composers who interested him make extremely high technical demands of pianists, it is mainly to musicologists that we recommend the study of these transcriptions.
