Would it be possible to base a theatre performance concept on the latest findings of folk music research? Are dog-eat-dog entertainment and scientific rigour irredeemable partners? The Liszt Academy’s Folk Music Department has already proven itself in this respect with an evening entitled Forgotten Székler Land from two years ago, which provided audiences with both an unforgettable concert experience and a picture – authentic in terms of folk music – of this archaic musical world. This concert concentrates on the entire Hungarian-speaking territory, using the Hungarian Folk Music Anthology as the backbone of the production. The series launched at the initiative and as the brainchild of György Martin presented the music of the Magyars by region, in a total of seven albums. Despite its troubled fate, this authoritative series ranks to this day as the most complete audio material encompassing the entire verticum of folk music. Following the structure of the anthology split into major music-geo regions, this concert reveals in seven parts the Hungarian folk music dialects, the given area’s characteristic genres, song types and customs in a performance by the best singers and instrumentalists of the department.
