Play Mikrokosmos for chance to win Bartók T-shirt

(November 2017)

BartokTshirtGiveaway.jpg Boosey & Hawkes has teamed up with Pianist magazine for a T-shirt giveaway. Pianists of all ages and abilities are invited to video themselves playing an item from Bartók's keyboard classic Mikrokosmos.

If you or your piano students love the music of Béla Bartók, you'll be pleased to learn of a new T-shirt celebrating Mikrokosmos together with a competition giveaway. Boosey & Hawkes has teamed up with Pianist magazine to offer new T-shirts to six winners. These will be drawn from pianists who send a video of themselves performing an extract from Bartók's keyboard classic Mikrokosmos.

If you don't have the music to hand don't worry: you can download a free selection of pieces from Mikrokosmos here during the competition period, running until the end of January 2018.

How to enter:
1) Choose a piece from Bartók’s Mikrokosmos. Don’t worry if you’ve only just started playing; in the spirit of Mikrokosmos, we encourage pianists (in fact, we don’t really mind what instrument you play!) of all ages and abilities to enter, so please choose any piece you like. If you don’t own any of the Mikrokosmos collections, you can download a selection of the pieces here, for free.

2) Film yourself playing your chosen piece. Your performance doesn’t have to be note-perfect, either. Just show us that you love Bartók!

3) Tweet your video to us @boosey_london, including the hashtag #bartoksmikrokosmos.

There are six T-shirts available to win. Competition is open from 22 November 2017 - 31 January 2018. Winners will be chosen at random and announced on 1st February 2018.
