    "My pedagogical activities inspired me to compose the Hommages. The pieces were intended to be etudes or studies which students my use as supplementary material to the usual dry and mechanical - although indispensable - exercises. They contain variosus challenges. If performed with impressive dexterity, with proper tone production and sufficient knowledge of styles, coupled with a sense of humor and a certain amout of fantasy, they could - houpefully - find success even on the concert stage. .." -Bela Kovacs
