This chapter focuses on Béla Bartók's musical activities between 1907 and 1909. It first considers Bartók's appointment as professor of piano at the Academy of Music in Hungary before turning to his concert activity, teaching, composing, and collecting of folk music. It then examines Bartók's compositions in collaboration with Stefi Geyer, including the First Violin Concerto, Two Portraits, Fourteen Bagatelles, Ten Easy Piano Pieces, Two Elegies, and the First String Quartet. It also discusses some of Bartók's compositions after his relationship with Geyer ended, such as the rhetorical and rhapsodic elegy for solo piano completed in February 1908 and the pedagogic Ten Easy Piano Pieces, along with his interest in Romanian folk music.

Keywords:   compositions, Béla Bartók, Academy of Music, Hungary, folk music, Stefi Geyer, First Violin Concerto, Fourteen Bagatelles, piano, First String Quartet
