BMC Records Sándor Végh in his Mother Tongue

The cultural diversity characteristic of Kolozsvár and its environs, inhabited as it was by Hungarians, Romanians, and Germans; the presence, then still natural, of folk traditions; and the proximity of folk music all played a determining role in the formation of Sándor Végh’s musical personality. As he recalled in an interview he gave in his later years: ‘As a small child I was already listening to the servant girls singing the songs from their home villages. Each village had its own songs. I liked this very much, and I sang along with them. At that time song was an inseparable part of everyday life.’
