Final Hour

  Back in 1907, Béla Bartók on an expedition collecting folk music in Transylvania wrote about the difficulties of the task at hand in a letter: “Despite every concerted effort, a researcher looking for old Hungarian folk songs, instead finds mostly popular melodies and composed city tunes.

That is not too surprising given that the nearby Váralmás (Almaşu), was once the musical centre of this smaller region and it had major Gypsy musician dynasties that played for the Romanians, Hungarians and Gypsies alike. 

The two lead violin players on this recording have inherited the knowledge of those musical dynasties – although they were born after 1948 into the “new world” of communism.
As children, they learned a lot in the 1960s and 1970s from the traditional culture along Almás Creek, handed down to us by a gene-ration of great Kalotaszeg musicians, such as Ferenc Varga “Csipás”, Sándor Fodor “Neti”, Miklós Nonika “Hitler” or Aladár Zágor “Pici”.
