Opus Numbers: Bartok gave opus numbers 1-31 to his early works composed between 1894. With the composition of the Piano Sonata in 1894 he began again at 1 and gave opus numbers up through 21 before stopping. With the Rhapsody for Piano (1904), Bartok started assigning opus numbers for the final time, this time only giving opus numbers to what he considered major works. After the Violin Sonata N. (1921) received O. 1, Bartok discontinued assigning opus numbers to his works
Bartók: Works For Piano Solo. The most amazing solo piano composition by Bela Bartok has been omitted, namely, Bartok's piano version of his CONCERTO FOR ORCHESTRA.

Béla Bartók: Béla Bartók, Hungarian composer, pianist, ethnomusicologist, and teacher, noted for the Hungarian flavour of his major musical works, which include orchestral works, string quartets, piano solos, several stage works, a cantata, and a number of settings of folk songs for voice and piano. The composer’s son Peter, a recording engineer (from 1949) who worked with Folkways Records, was a crucial figure in the dissemination of American folk and avant-garde music on LP records. Though Béla Bartók’s music was infrequently performed outside Hungary during his lifetime, many of his compositions, including the string quartets and the Concerto for Orchestra, later entered the standard concert repertory. Within a quarter century after his death, many of Bartók’s works had been recognized as belonging among the classics of Western music.
