Hungary’s deep musical roots in folk tradition had widespread influence on composers of other lands. Brahms, the strict traditionalist, shared his love of Hungarian folk music with his predecessors Mozart, Haydn, and Schubert, and his passion for it is heard expertly realized in his Hungarian Dances. György Ligeti was an artistic descendent of both folk music pioneers Bartók and Kodály, and Dohnányi’s early quintet garnered the hard-won admiration of Brahms.
