  • Abstract of Talk by Robert McFall: 11 January 2021 at 6.30pm


    Béla Bartók and Folk Music    – Join us for a TALK


    by Robert McFall, on January 11, 2021 @ 6.30 pm


    It was during the summer of 1904, while staying in Gerlicepuszta


    near Ratkó in Slovakia, that the young Bartók overheard a girl


    from Transylvania singing a traditional song. In this talk I want to


    explore how this pivotal moment set Bartók on a new course


    compositionally, which ultimately had a huge influence on


    twentieth century music. The talk will be accompanied by musical


    clips, including some of the original cylinder gramophone


    recordings which Bartók brought back from his folk song


    collecting expeditions.
