In the first decade of the 20th century, Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály began to research authentic Hungarian folk music in the field, studies that provided life-long inspiration for both musicians. “If I were asked to name the composer whose works are the most perfect embodiment of the Hungarian spirit, I would answer, Kodály,” Bartók wrote in 1928. “His work proves his faith in the Hungarian spirit… His composing activity is rooted only in Hungarian soil.”
Come for: Dudamel leads a powerful and kaleidoscopic program of 20th-century Hungarian works, capped by the suite from Bartók’s scandalous pantomime ballet.
