Béla Bartók is considered to be one of the greatest Hungarian composers and one of the most significant musicians of the twentieth century. He displayed an extreme passion for ethnomusicology. His music was invigorated by the themes, modes, and rhythmic patterns of the Hungarian and other folk music traditions he studied, which he synthesized with influences from his contemporaries into his own distinctive style.
