András Hodorog is the last living virtuoso among native flute players in the Carpathian region of Hungary.

Accompanied by Soma Salamon, a longtime student and ethnomusicologist, and other young traditional singers and players, Hodorog presents a concert, lecture/demonstration, and hands-on workshop that focuses on his performance style: an ancient, improvisational form based on a rich palette of motivic fragments, patterns, and melodic ornamentations.

This presentation provides a rare opportunity to hear a living master and observe motivic design and improvisational practice in traditional music genres.
