New publication: Bereczky János: [The New Style Hungarian Folk Songs]. Volumes I–IV. Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest. 2013. „New style” refers to a newer layer of Hungarian folk songs which began to develop sometime in the 1800s and peaked sometime in the first decade or so of the 1900s. Bereczky spent twenty years doing comprehensive research and categorizing existing examples of new style folk songs. His work has defined two historical layers of new style: the ’early’ and ’developed’ periods. Detailed review by Richter Pál – Director of the folk music department, Liszt Academy of Music.
