On November 20th singer Herczku Ágnes performed in Budapest as the final event of the Seven Towers Festival with her “Bartók Evening”. On December 19th she’ll appear at the Hungarian Heritage House with a program of traditional music from the Transylvanian village of Visa, including traditional performers from the village – celebrating her recently released double CD set of music of Visa. One of the CDs contains original recordings of traditional performers in Visa; the other – the revival CD – is the same material performed by Herczku and her hand-picked group of revival musicians. The basic message here is that revival performers should work directly from the pure source. Interview by Ménes Márta (first appeared at: 061.hu).
