Pre-concert Talk
Prof. Ed Gollin “Bartok and the Balkans”

Folk tradition is as much a part of the DNA of modern classical music as are great individual composers. Many of the very composers we accept as great innovators and inspired geniuses took a great interest in everything they heard. In this presentation Associate Professor of Music Ed Gollin explores the interplay between folk traditions and classical music in the work of Bela Bartok.
