Turkish Folk Music from Asia Minor by Bela Bartok

This book is a substantial and thorough musicological analysis of Turkish folk music. It reproduces in facsimile Bart?k's autograph record of eighty seven vocal and instrumental peasant melodies of the Y?r?k Tribes, a nomadic people in southern Anatolia. Bart?k's introduction includes his annotations of the melodies, texts, and translations and establishes a connection between Old Hungarian and Old Turkish folk music.

Begun in 1936 and completed in 1943, the work was Bart?k's last major essay. The editor, Dr. Benjamin Suchoff, has provided an historical introduction and a chronology of the various manuscript versions. An afterword by Kurt Reinhard describes recent research in Turkish ethnomusicology and gives a contemporary assessment of Bart?k's field work in Turkey. Appendices prepared by the editor include an index of themes compiled by computer.
