The first four volumes of Mikrokosmos were written to provide study material for the beginner pianist - young or adult - and are intended to cover, as far as possible, most of the simple technical problems likely to be encountered in the early stages. The material in volumes 1-3 has been designed to be sufficient in itself for the first or first and second year of study.
The Mikrokosmos is a cycle of 153 pieces for piano, written with a didactic purpose. That is, to give the piano pieces which can be used from the very beginning, and then going on, it is graded according to difficulties. The title Mikrokosmos can be interpreted as a series of pieces in many different styles, representing a small world. This edition has been written in English, French, German and Hungarian.
