Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A continuation of Suchoff's Bela Bartok Essays (Univ. of Nebraska, 1992. reprint), this work contains the published ethnomusicological writings that were omitted from that book "for practical reasons." In the preface, Suchoff comments on Bartok's ethnomusicological methods and philosophy. He then arranges pieces dating from 1913 to 1959 in chronological order (though some items have been dated differently from their entries in the bibliography of Essays). Most welcome may be Item 88 from that bibliography, "Hungarian Folk Music and the Folk Music of Neighboring Peoples," a 30-page essay with 80 musical examples. Item 24, on "Arab Folk Music," has 65 musical examples, and Item 56 ("Transylvanian Hungarian Folk Music") has 150. A useful complement to existing materials, this is recommended for all libraries owning the earlier collection.?Bonnie Jo Dopp, Univ. of Maryland at College Park Lib.

“An essential contribution to the growing field of ethnomusicology, providing unique insights into Bartók’s pioneering folk-music investigations.”—David Yeomans, author of Bartók for Piano
