Béla Bartók is the most important figure in Hungarian music literature. His folk music collections were indispensable for the following generations’ efforts to preserve the values of Hungarian culture: the melodies he recorded continue to define traditional folk and classical music to this day, and keep inspiring the world of jazz and world music.
Bartók was keenly interested in the music of not only the Hungarian regions, but that of the peoples in the neighbouring countries and more distant regions (e.g. North Africa, Turkey) as well. Featuring verzióban „Meshi” Majda Mária Guessous, the Ballet Company of Győr and the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, Pure Source presents, through the connection of Turkish and Hungarian music, some characteristic pieces of Bartók’s œuvre, highlighting in particular the links between music and dance.
