Three Hungarian Folk-Tunes, Sz66

1914-18; published by Boosey & Hawkes, New York, in the 1942 volume Homage to Paderewksi

The 1942 Boosey & Hawkes publication opens with the Three Hungarian Folk-Tunes Sz66 (BB80b) by Béla Bartók, which were composed many years before the commission, in 1914–18. The Hungarian characteristics of these pieces include the use of modal melodies based on the Mixolydian and Dorian scales and frequent melodic leaps of the fourth as found in the last two folksongs.

Le volume Boosey & Hawkes s’ouvre sur les Trois airs folkloriques hongrois Sz66 (BB80b) de Béla Bartók, composés en 1914–18, bien avant la commande de 1941. Parmi les hungarismes de ces pièces, citons l’usage de mélodies modales fondées sur les gammes mixolydienne et dorienne, ainsi que de fréquents sauts de quarte mélodiques (dans les deux derniers chants).

Das Boosey & Hawkes-Album von 1942 beginnt mit den Drei ungarischen Volksliedern Sz66 (BB80b) von Béla Bartók, die 1914–18 komponiert wurden, also lange vor dem Auftrag. Zu den ungarischen Merkmalen dieser Stücke gehören modale Melodien, die auf der mixolydischen und der dorischen Skala basieren, sowie häufige melodische Quartsprünge, z. B. in den letzten beiden Volksliedern.
