By Zala Dance Ensemble Association Page 43 December 16, 2006 – an evening of folk dance and music celebrating Takács András’ 75th birthday. Takács András, originally from the Gömör region of Southern Central Slovakia, has been a key figure in the Hungarian folk dance movement in Slovakia for many, many decades. He was dancer and founder of the Népes Ensemble, and has been a tireless organizer, researcher, consultant and supporter of traditional dance in Hungarian communities in Slovakia. Report by Kövesdi Károly, first published in ’Új szó’ on December 22nd, 2006. Page 44 Part 4: Discussion on folk music arrangements The point of departure here is musical accompaniment for stage productions of traditional folk dance. In preparing the music for a folk dance choreography the music director must deal with questions on authentic instrumentation, choice of melody from available authentic melodic vocabulary, key, etc. Questions arise on whether or not the piece of music prepared for a given choreography can be considered a seperate work, which should then be subject to copyright laws and royalties. Also discussion of questions and arguments of ethics and taste when taking the liberty to depart from the totally authentic - as played by the traditional musicians in their own environment. As usual, these questions are laced with the arguments on authenticity that so often arise in a revival movement. By Kiss Ferenc

Page 46 Part I. Research on Eastern Folk Music: history of research A review of the reasons for and previous collection work done on folk music amongst Turkik and Finnougrik peoples from Mongolia and the Volga River to Anatolia in Turkey. Hungarians have done collection and analysis of traditional music from these areas mainly in search of the roots of Hungarian music. Bartók did important collection work in Turkey in 1936 before he emmigrated to the USA in 1940. Other Hungarians who have contributed to work in this area from 1956 to the present are Vikár László, Bereczki Gábor, Szabolcsi Bence, Vargyas Lajos, Dobzsay László, Szendrei Janka and the author of this study, Sipos János (musicologist and researcher at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences).
