Although these versions being played are arrangements of Kodály's compositions, this is in no way ‘blasphemy'. The undisguised objective is in harmony with Kodály's maxim: "Music should belong to everyone!” The aim this time, as before, is to expose the broadest possible range of present and future music-lovers to this music. The Ballad of Márton Vidróczki, which forms the backbone of Pictures from the Mátra, is itself a reworking of a folk song, and it was in the hands of Kodály the composer that the originally folk melodies played in Háry János took on dramatic form.
