Elements of Hungarian Folk Music
"Broadly speaking, Hungarian music is active rather than passive, an expression of the will rather than that of the feelings. It is remote from self-indulgent grief, from 'delight in tears.' Even the Székely 'laments' are infused with energy and determination . . . Its rhythms are trenchant, sharply defined and varied. Its melodies do not emerge timidly from a preconceived harmonic base, but are dynamic and free-flowing. Its forms are concise, well-proportioned, and transparently clear . . ."
