In case you missed it, we hosted an amazing discussion with Lucian Ban last week as part of our Celebrating Bartók series! Ban presented "Retracing Bartók – From Transylvania to Saranac Lake," discussing Bartok’s lifelong dedication and passion for the folk music of Romanian people, and his research trips and field recordings at the beginning of the Twentieth Century in Transylvania and beyond. The entire presentation is now available to watch on our YouTube channel. Please share the link with anyone who might enjoy learning more about Bartók!
If you are interested in Ban's album of folk recordings, it can be found on BandCamp.
All previous recordings from this series are available on our YouTube channel as well.
And finally, learn more about the remainder of the series on our website. The Celebrating Bartók series is made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy Demands Wisdom.
