44th National Táncház Festival & Fair • 4–6 April 2025
Honoring the 71st anniversary of Béla Bartók’s death, Góbé Band will perform Bartók’s 44 Duos for Two Violins (Sz. 98, BB 104) with traditional source material: Hungarian, Romanian, Slovakian, Ruthenian, and Serbian folk melodies.
Fonó, 7 pm. 23 October, 2016.

“There is no other composition that better demonstrates the ethnic variety that Bartók - also as a researcher - worked with: he made use of Hungarian, Romanian and Slovakian folk melodies, as well as Ruthenian, Serbian and Arab folk dances and songs. [...]
Bartók’s true aim becomes clear through this unique series of instructional compositions. Not only are the pieces based on original folk melodies, most of which the composer/ ethnomusicologist took directly from the mouth of the folk themselves, [….] but they also preserve something of a disappearing environment and life.…These compositions…have artistically inspired, higher - or deeper - educational content.” (László Vikárius)
