About

The rich treasure of Gypsy music is known, danced to, and sung in every European country from Russia to Spain, fusing with the folk music of each culture with which it interacts. Even the concert repertoire has paid it homage. Gypsy music became a source of inspiration for the classical composers of Hungary, Romania, and Czechoslovakia. Saul Lilienstein's lecture will trace the linkage between the exotic improvisations of the Romany people with Franz Liszt, Zoltán Kodály, and Bela Bartók, illuminating unexpected facets in their music. Note: The NSO does not perform in this event.
