Hungarian Folk Song
Some info on Hungarian Soprano, Erika Miklósa
Interview with composer: Béla Bartók (1881-1945)
Listen to him speaking about his music.
Bartók plays Bartók Romanian Dance no. 1
Many other performances of the composer playing his own music at Youtube!
I wasn't able to find very many examples of Bartok or Kodaly Songs. But here is the wonderful Lucia Popp,who was born in Slovakia (formerly Czechoslovakia) with pianist, Geoffrey Parsons. She sings four Kodaly Folk Songs in Hungarian and according to Kata, her pronunciation is perfect!
Zoltán Kodály: "Magyar népzene" (Hungarian Folk Music/Ungarische Volksmusik)
"Akkor szép az erdő" (Lovely is the forest/Schön ist' s im Walde)
"Kocsi, szekér" (Wheelcart, barrow/Noch ein Monat)
"Ifjúság, mint sólyommadár" (A Little Sad Song/Jugend)
