The sound archives of the Institute for Musicolgy of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences disposes over a large and invaluable audio folk music collection. It means some ten thousands hours of authentic folk music recordings. To afford the wider public an insight into this collection a series of record - title Hungarian Folk MusicAnthology - started in 1985. The order of sets follows the Hungarian folk music dialect-areas, as Béla Bartók established then, each containing about 4 hours sound material illustrating the area with the characteristical song types. So far 4×5 records and 2 sets of cassettes have appeared: the folk-dance survey, the songs from North Hungary, Transdanubia, the Great Hungarian Plain, and East (i.e. Transylvania) in two parts. The closing part of the Antology is a set of 4 CS-s containing the folk music of Hungarians living in Moldavia and Bukovina. The demonstation will intraduce the history and the musical world of those.
