BARTOK:  Romanian Folk Dances
Gabriela Lena FRANK:  Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout
Sarah JAROSZ:  with orchestra

Authentic folk music reveals the joys and cares of real people. These three composers explore that authentic music through the lens of their own experience to reflect their own voice and choices.

Hungarian composer Béla Bartók had a life-long passion for the traditional music of his homeland. He wrote his Romanian Folk Dances as a suite of six short piano pieces in 1915, during World War I, and in 1917 he orchestrated it for a small ensemble. Taking real folk melodies that he collected in the villages of Transylvania, Bartók shared the rich harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic elements of the original music.

American composer Gabriela Lena Frank (b. 1972) is fascinated with the music of her mother's homeland and has been inspired by Peruvian writer José Maria Arguedas whose philosophies propose a world without dominance and subjugation. Taking the forms, instruments, and folk personalities of Peru, the young American imagines and recreates these elements in her own music.
