Folklore elements in composed music and their reflections in the Slovak context
The utilization of folklore elements in composed music was explored by Slovak musicologists and composers during the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries. Their views were published in monographs, historical syntheses, studies, and essays in periodicals and journals. Perspectives on the selection of folklore models and on the way of their utilization in musical compositions kept changing according to the various historical periods and the contemporaneous social and cultural situation. This study presents an overview of the perspectives of Slovak musicologists and composers on this issue within three concepts of working with folklore models: an aesthetic, a historical, and a theoretical-analytical one.
