Folk Music of Czechoslovakia

on BBC Radio 3

Illustrated by field recordings
Few European countries offer such varied folk music as Czechoslovakia. In Bohemia for centuries peasant music has been influenced by urban conventions. Slovak melodies are full of the primitive 'novelties' so prized by Bartok (he recorded more than three thousand Slovak tunes, and was deeply influenced by them). Moravia presents engaging music In which Western shapeliness combines with Eastern colour.
Broadcast on September 10
Followed by an interlude at 7.55
