ŤAHAVÉ PIESNE V ZÁPISE KAROLA PLICKU NA PRÍKLADE PIESŇOVÝCH ŽÁNROV ZO STREDNÉHO POVAŽIA
Drawn-out songs transcribed by Karol Plicka. Taking the example of song genres from central Považie
Languages of publication
The manuscript collection of Slovak folk songs by Karol Plicka includes many valuable song entries, which may be regarded as an important part of the history of transcription of “drawn-out song” in Slovakia. Its core consists of songs sung in the countryside when working in the setting of the mountains and foothills. The acoustics of the setting and the function of song influenced the musical structure and mode of rendering of these songs, which was expressed especially in their specific metric-rhythmic construction. Based on the song entries by Karol Plicka from selected localities of central Považie, where the largest numbers of his entries were taken (Mariková, Dohňany, Lazy pod Makytou), we document the song genres associated with drawn-out song at work in the countryside and we clarify the mode of their transcription, from the viewpoint of this collector.
