The title of this gala programme is the concluding thought from Béla Bartók's work Cantata profana. Believing that the "purest source” was the ancient and untouched music of rural communities, Bartók and Zoltán Kodály would make their two names synonymous with the discovery of the folk music of the Carpathian basin. Being played at this concert are orchestral and choral compositions, the two composers' arrangements of various folk songs, alongside original folk music sources. This spectacularly festive performance presents authentic interpretations of folk songs and dances by folk musicians, folk dancers and the winners of the "Fölszállott a páva” television folk music talent show.
