Béla Bartók set off for Maros–Torda County in April 1914, before the outbreak of the First World War, on what was to be the composer’s last great trip to collect folk music in Transylvania. A few months later the war swept away the state of authentic folk music that came to be preserved in his recordings. Bartók 1914 is a production that pays tribute to this musical material. The concert features Magos Band hosting special guests: informant musicians from Transylvania as well as Ágnes Langer and Balázs Fülei.
