Redefining Hungarian Music from Liszt to Bartók

Lynn M. Hooker

  • Examines the history of "Hungarian rhythm," an idea whose origins have not been previously interrogated.
  • Draws on sources from the 19th- and early 20th-century press that have rarely or never been examined since their publication.
  • Examines Hungarian musical life of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as a cultural landscape rife with debate over the nature of ethnicity and race and the future of national symbols and cultural institutions.
