Interview with Cservenák Ármin – one of three young Hungarian composers that won awards at a competition sponsored by the Hungarian Association of Composers in celebration of the 135th anniversary of Kodály Zoltán’s birth. Competitors had to compose works based on folk music. Ármin found a folk song in the Kallós Archive that he could work with: “I was looking for a folk song that would take hold of me so much that an entire piece could unfold from it.” Ármin is 22 years old. He is studying contemporary classical music and composition at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (Austria). He was born in Gyula, Hungary. By Grozdits Károly.
