Autograph postcard signed "Bartók" to Richard Wank, a piano student of Bartók's in Budapest, dated February [1911]

Bartók writes to change the time of his student's lesson, from Thursday to Saturday at 9, and send greetings.

Uniformly browned, slightly lighter at margins, most probably from an earlier matting; partial postmarks to both recto and verso.

"Although he earned his living mainly from teaching and playing the piano and was a relentless collector and analyst of folk music, Bartók is recognized today principally as a composer... He is now considered, along with Liszt, to be his country’s greatest composer, and, with Kodály and Dohnányi, a founding figure of 20th-century Hungarian musical culture." Malcolm Gillies in Grove Music Online.
