The New Bell by : Agnes Lakos : Gyorgy Orban
György Orbán (born 1947) is among the most frequently performed contemporary Hungarian composers. His style incorporates a characteristic mix of classical; modern; cinematic; and jazz elements. In addition; he claims he “loves splashing about in tonality;” which makes his works accessible to the wider public. Owing to his humor and imagination; he finds an easy path to children; as demonstrated by the popularity of his piano works specifically intended for beginners. He composed close to 70 short children s pieces for Ágnes Lakos s four-volume Friendly Piano Tutor (Z. 14749-14756); later published separately as Enchanted Forest (Z. 14742).
The New Bell includes a further 19 piano pieces for beginners; among others; we encounter a baby elephant now and again (perhaps paying a visit from Debussy's Children's Corner?) and we hear the awful clamor of a most outgoing granny's alarm clock as well as the solemn tolling of a new church-bell. The pieces are arranged in order of difficulty and even include a few items for three hands; which may be played by a pupil with the teacher or another student.
