The Slovak Folk Songs collection consists of over 3,400 melodies, which makes it the largest anthology of folk songs collected by the Hungarian composer, compared to his Hungarian and Romanian collections. This volume is ready for print and should be published by the end of May. The collection of Slovak Folk Songs is considered to be the best of Bartók's work in ethno-musicology, and among the top European work in the field.
