Béla Bartók is, alongside Franz Liszt, regarded as Hungary’s greatest composer and one of the most important of the 20th century—as well as a skilled pianist and  ethnomusicologist. Bartók’s music provides Dr. Robert Lehmann, Professor of Music and Director of Strings Studies and Orchestral Activities at the University of Southern Maine School of Music, an excellent focus for the ways composers have adopted Hungarian and Armenian ethnic folk song traditions for use in classical genres as he guides us in a pre-performance lecture demonstrating the importance of these vocal folk traditions to classical music.

The pre-performance lecture takes place at Hannford Hall at USM’s Portland Campus.
