This disc is given as an introduction to a series of grammophone records, the edition of which is planned to be started in 1965 by the Folk Music Research Group of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The enteerprise is aimed at presenting a comprehensive survey of Hungarian traditional music, and to this end we have selected tunes recorded during the past thirty years.
The preservation of folk music in Hungary is far from beingevenly uniform: in certain regions even the young generation sings in the traditional style (e. g. the singeer of tune A6) while in others the oldest singers hardly remember it. The manifold styles of the melodies suggest a rich and far-reachinghistory of the Hungarian folk music. The fact that unisonous performance still prevails should by no means be regarded as a mark of a poorly developed taste; rather would it be looked upon as a consequence of general pentatony and of a developed sense for linear forming.
In our days the proportion between vocal and instrumental folk music is not the same as it was in the past: instrumental traditions fell victim to the overwhelming progress of civilization in the 19th century sooner than a sufficient number of researchers, by the means of a modern technique, could collect them.
On the first side of this record mainly types of the "old style" are included. Some of them show very close relations to the folk music of those people in the Ural region with whom our ancestors had kept contact while living there (A1 and A2). Apart from its descending line of melody, pentatonic features and transposition in fifths, they are characterized by the two main tempo-types of the Magyar folk songs: "parlando rubato" which allows a free performance and "tempo giusto" (which denotes a strictly measured rhythm) quick to a greater or lesser degree.
Much more varied than these are the types given on the second side, where a selection of Hungarian folk songs show the influence of the European environment. This influenced is evidenced in scale, rhythm and structure. Track B9a to B9c gives specimens of the "new style" characterized by a tempo giusto and the regular return of the first melodic phrase. This type flourished during the period from the last decades of the past century to the end of World War II.

Hungarian Folk Music: The Legendary Folk Album.

Hungarian folk music (Magyar Népzene) includes a broad array of Central European styles, including the recruitment dance verbunkos, the csárdás and nóta. The name Népzene is also used for Hungarian folk music as an umbrella designation of a number of related styles of traditional folk music from Hungary and Hungarian minorities living in modern-day Austria, the, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, central Romania (Transylvania) (Székely), Moldova (Csángó), and Serbia.

Hungarian Folk Music Inspiring Contemporary Music and Vice Versa. Needless to say, traditional Hungarian music inspires contemporary genres, artists and there are many popular hits, which are well worth listening to. Csik Folk Band (Csík Zenekar) performing a Hungarian indie rock slow love song from Quimby. Dance in the Snow by Ghymes Band playing world music takings its roots and motifs from Hungarian folk music. Lajko Felix, Magdolna Ruzsa: And They Say (Meg azt mondjak). Star or Willow by Kispal es a Borz and Csik Band.

This 1983 Folkways release is a perfect example of the constant ebb, flow, and evolution of what we commonly refer to as folk music. The record catalogs the musical traditions of several different Hungarian-American communities.
