Hungarian songs for Voice and Piano

Description

This work is a collection of sheet music for 100 Hungarian songs and includes the text in the original Hungarian with translations in German and English. Desiderius Demény is listed as the composer. Elisabeth Lockwood and Adalbert Heidelberg contributed the English and German translations, respectively.

According to Barbara Lange in The Power of Discountinuity in Hungary Gypsy Nóta, “magyar nóta is a type of nineteenth century Hungarian popular song (Lange, 519).” This suggests that the songs within this book are not specifically from a gypsy or Roma origin, but instead stem from this traditional Hungarian music. However, it is possible that various Roma groups throughout Hungary could have sung any number of these songs in some context.

It is also interesting to note that the composer or compiler of these 100 songs, Demény, does not come up in any research, save for when he is mentioned as a student of Victor von Herzfeld (Pfitzinger, 237). Herzfeld was a violinist and composer that studied in both Vienna and Berlin before moving to Budapest to become a professor of music theory and composition at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music (Csando). It is here that one can assume he became the mentor of Desiderius Demêny, who would later come to compile this work.
