B茅la Bart贸k's formative years as a composer in Budapest were stimulated by fashionable musical salons hosted by the wealthy Emma Gruber (later Zolt谩n Kod谩ly's wife). His landmark Rhapsody, Op.1is dedicated to Gruber, while the earlier Variations are a romantic homage to his talented colleague Felicie F谩bi谩n, composer of the theme. The virtuoso Etudes focus on hand flexibility for pianists -the pieces For Children are based on Hungarian and Slovak peasant songs partly collected by Bart贸k. These revelatory sounds caused Bart贸k to change his approach to composing. He likened the arranging of a peas-ant melody to 'the mounting of a jewel', producing extremely effective miniature masterpieces of graceful perfection.
