9789630036726: In the Wake of Bartok in Anatolia

"Béla Bartók collected folk music in Turkey in 1936. His book about the Anatolian collection did not make a stir, although the work is a milestone in ethnomusicology. What may underlie this lack of scholarly interest? Disregarding for now all sorts of possible explanations, one argument still carries much weight: Bartók's Turkish collection is so meagre that drawing conclusions valid for the folk music of a people numbering some sixty million is only possible with much caution and reservation. When I taught at the department of Hungarology at Ankara University, in 1988-1993, I had the opportunity to collect some 1500 tunes. I began my collection in areas where Bartók had stopped his. Then, as fewer and fewer new tunes were found, I shifted my field of research gradually westward. A six-year stay on the spot, the mastery of the Turkish language, and regular collecting, transcribing and analyzing work enabled me to prepare a large body of systematized Turkish material for publication. Are there similar Hungarian and Anatolian tunes? What can the similarities be ascribed to? I attempt to answer these questions in this book."
