Folk music has had an influence on ‘classical’ composers, from Hildegard von Bingen to composers of the present day.
This talk will provide an historical whistle-stop tour, before focusing in greater depth on specific composers and works, including Schubert, Bartok and Dvorak, whose String Quartet, Op. 96 (American) will be performed at a later concert in the series.
