Logos Seminar- The ethnomusicological research of Bartok and Kodaly
November 2, 2017 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Presenter: Pál Richter
Chair: Dr Colin Quigley
Bartok and Kodaly are among the most influential figures in the history of folk music research, a field of study we now know as ethnomusicology. Their massive collections provide the foundation for the Archive at the Folk Music Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Today we still have much to learn much from their seminal work.
Pál Richter is Professor and Head of Department for Folk Music at the Liszt Academy in Budapest. He is the author of numerous books and articles on historical relations in among various repertoires in Hungarian folk and early music. He will discuss the ethnomusicological research of Bartok and Kodaly in the LOGOS seminar.
