Hungarian, German

Territory

This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the world.

Repertoire Note

A beautifully crafted set of mature folksong settings, five of which Bartók later orchestrated as an eleven-minute-long collection. They mark the beginning of a renewed interest in the setting and
rearranging of folksongs.
