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.

Our research in 1998 during the Final Hour project focused on the instrumental folk music and dance. We strived to make a complete inventory of the band’s repertoire and vocabulary of melodies related to the local dances and other customs.
The Oláhszentgyörgy musicians are members of the Poliac and Moldovan families; famous fiddlers came from both of these families. Until the beginning of the 20th century, the band had only violins, viola and small cymbalom.
The latter instrument was used until sometime between the two World Wars, since then the accordion has taken its place. Prior to WWI, the guitar was also used here – as in Maramureş. The double-bass has been used here since the 1930s.
