Hommage to Lajtha László (1892–1963): a composer, pianist, conductor, who did research on folk music and dance, was member of the French Academy of the Arts and taught at the Hungarian Academy of Music. He did important research on traditional instrumental Transylvanian music. When collection work in Transylvania became impossible after WW II, in 1953 he began doing folk music research in Western Hungary’s Vas and Sopron Counties. By Antal László.
