“The Final Test of Artistic Knowledge” Zoltán Kodály about folk song processing In the case of the young Zoltán Kodály and Béla Bartók the motivation for their collecting folk music was the renewing of the language of the composed Hungarian music, – that was written in the turn of 19th-20th century mostly in Wagnerian style. This was characteristic also in Europe, to which the author cites examples from the newer ethnomusicological literature. Kodály rarely spoke about his own compositions. One exception is the long talking with Lutz Besch in 1964. The others are his own, personal notes, which were published only decades later after his death (1967). Kodály the composer often declared his basis to be vocal. However, he was interested as well as researcher, composer and educator of people in the full traditional musical culture, the instrumental folk music within. As professor of the subject of composing at the Academy of Music in Budapest he many times drew attention to the importance of the musical mother tongue. In his memoirs he spoke also about the method of folk song processing. But first of all he talked about the knowledge of the country, the countryside and people within. When studying the music of a region, he personally examined the whole way of life and also the different ethnic groups and different nations. The author not only cites Kodály’writings about folk song prossessing but gives new sources to his work Dances of Marosszék.
