Programme note:

In 1906 the Hungarian composers Béla Bartók (1881 – 1945) and Zoltán Kodály (1882 – 1967) published a collection of twenty Hungarian Folksong arrangements for voice and piano ('Magyar népdalok énekhangra és zongorára'). The first ten arrangements are by Bartók. The first song: 'Elindultam szép hazámból' ("I left my beautiful fatherland") came to be applied to Bartók himself after his self-imposed exile in the USA. The third and fourth movements are in two parts - the third movement presenting two versions of 'Fehér László', and the fourth movement containing two different songs - 'A gyulai kert alatt' and 'A kertmegi kert alatt'. In later editions, the fifth song - 'Ucca, ucca, ég az ucca' - was omitted, but is retained in these arrangements for instruments in four parts.

The titles of the ten songs by Bartók are:
1. Elindultam szép hazámbul / Far Behind I Left My Country
2. Által mennék én a Tiszán ladikon / Crossing the River
3a. Fehér László / The Horse-thief
3b. Fehér László / The Horse-thief
4a. A gyulai kert alatt / In the Summer Fields
4b. A kertmegi kert alatt / I Was in a Garden Green
5. Ucca, ucca, ég az ucca
6. Ablakomba, ablakomba / Deceived in Love
7. Száraz ágtól messze virít a rózsa / Love’s a Burden
8. Végigmentem a tárkányi / Walking Through the Town
9. Nem messze van ide kis Margitta / The Horseman
10. Szánt a babám / My Love Has Gone A-ploughing
