This chapter discusses Béla Bartók's concerts and other musical activities during the years 1925–1928. In October 1925 Bartók embarked on a brief concert tour of Holland in collaboration with Zoltán Székely. As well as playing sonatas by Bach, Brahms and Mozart, and a selection of Bartók's piano pieces, they performed Székely's own arrangement of the Romanian Folk Dances. The duo's recitals at Arnhem and Utrecht passed off successfully and Bartók also performed his Rhapsody op. 1 with the Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. This chapter analyses some of Bartók's compositions during this period, including the Sonata for Piano, Out of Doors, Nine Little Piano Pieces, and the First Piano Concerto. It also considers Bartók's performances in various U.S. cities.
