Though Bartok's music was rarely heard outside Hungary in his lifetime, he is recognised today as one of the most important composers, teachers and ethnomusicologists of the 20th century. His life long friendship and work with Kodaly led to the preservation of over 3000 authentic Hungarian folk tunes. Kodaly's music, though less percussive than Bartok's is similarly steeped in Hungarian folk traditions. Kodaly's innovative teaching methods are still alive and well in Music education today.
