Folk Music in Bartok's Compositions by : Vera Lampert
Folksong arrangements hold a significant place in Béla Bartók's oeuvre: more than a third of his compositions are folksong arrangements or contain movements built on folk music material. Moreover; the genre is not confined to certain style periods; it is present throughout Bartók's career. This catalog brings together all the folk melodies that appear in Bartók's compositions. They were selected from the documents of his ethnomusicological work: from the music books used in his collecting trips; from the master sheets containing his notations from phonograph recordings; and; occasionally; from his published collections. All the data pertaining to the original performances of the melodies – the singers' or performers' name; age; the place and time the song or instrumental piece was recorded; the collector's name in case it was not Bartók – can be found in the commentaries accompanying the melodies in the catalog. The accompanying CD contains all available surviving original recordings of the melodies.
