WONDERFUL! more of Bartók's students!
  8:15pm josh:

S in hungarian is pronounced sh as in sh*t

s in english is spelled Sz in hungarian.
  8:15pm josh:

ss in hungarian is a longer sh as in sh*t
  8:16pm josh:

Bethany. call me. i can help you with pronunciation 914-689-1955
  8:16pm Trevor:

Hope we get to hear some Iren Marik! She's a great story.

  8:17pm josh:

ferenc. the c is like a tz.
  8:19pm josh:

great thing about Hungarian is once you learn the pronunciation it’s 100% consistent. no irregular spellings or pronunciations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Krull Sagan:

Josh, how would one pronounce the name “Soltesz”?
Loving these past paprika weeks, Bethany!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm the Hurston moor-elf:

Good evening Bethany! Have you ever read Xenakis' book "Formalized Music"? I've been battling my way through it the last couple of weeks and would be interested to know what you make of it. His grasp of the mathematics (my background) which he uses seems a bit shaky, but I've not found any substantial criticism of the book online.
Avatar 8:21pm TDK60:

Josh, you speak/write Magyar?
Avatar 8:22pm Mister Dobalina:

Sweet set...
Avatar 8:22pm Bethany Ryker:

Thanks @josh, I appreciate your help and definitely want to take you up on your offer for Hungarian pronounciation. For tonight, though, too many balls in the air with remote studio broadcasting - so I hope all will forgive me for the slaughter!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...oh still Bartok related !
...no wonder it's so excellent...
Avatar 8:25pm Bethany Ryker:

@Trevor - yes, a short but sweet performance of Bach by Irén Marik is in the queue!
  8:26pm Trevor:

Thank you! She's kind of a hero of mine

@TDK60 Igen. picit.
  8:31pm bunyan:

The "improvement" over fifty years is that people voluntarily bring the listening device into their houses...
  8:31pm josh:

@KrullSagan Soltesz== shoal-tess. accent on the Shoal.

Things are sounding very good tonite.

Always lovely to be reminded by WFMU of how much there is in the world to learn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Krull Sagan:

Got it, josh, thanks; now if I could just nail that Bartok note thingy.....
Avatar 8:40pm slugluv1313:

@josh -- that is awesome!
i am Hungarian, but unfortunately did not learn the language growing up (i was born in 1959, my parents were living in Atlanta for a few years in the early 60s -- speaking a foreign language was NOT encouraged)
i did take a beginners' language course some years ago, and as *confusing* as some of the sounds may be (especially those vowels! like combinations of Sanskrit vowels, at least for me!) -- you are absolutely right, TOTALLY consistent
  8:40pm headcleaner:

this is sublime and delightful, bethany
  8:45pm headcleaner:

if anything, it is English that is muddled and inconsistent in its orthography / pronunciation
  8:46pm ?:

Did Bela Bartok compose his music in Buda (west side of the Danube) or Pest (east side).
  8:47pm bunyan:

That's what you get from mixing Germanic and Romance languages when holding land on and off the Continent... (English didn't even have _consistent_ formal orthography until the late 18th-Century or so...
  8:48pm headcleaner:

@bunyan: yeah, English is a giant crack-up basically
  8:49pm josh:

? Bartok’s house is on the Buda side in a neighborhood called Rose Hill (rozsadomb). the liszt akademia is in pest
Avatar 8:49pm Mister Dobalina:

Keep up the great work, Beth-ah-nee!
  8:50pm headcleaner:

Bethany - any curation slots coming up @ Barbés? now that'd be a treat
  8:50pm ?:

Min-ute a unit of time. mi-nute exceptionally small. Min uet a dance
  8:51pm headcleaner:

@josh - thanks, I'll keep that in mind for my next visit :)
