Kodály models perfectly the crosspollination of Hungarian folk materials and the formal structures of art music. His populist, folk-based approach provided a model for educational systems worldwide.
Written in 1914, the Duo for violin and cello, Opus 7 maintains a perfect balance between the two instruments with Hungarian contours, rhapsodic textures and enigmatic virtuosity.
