Abstract

The main aim of this paper is to re-examine the modalities of Béla Bartók’s influence as a composer during the first half of the 20th century to the main, dominantly “nationally oriented style” in the former Yugoslavia, focusing on two of Bartók’s somewhat younger contemporaries – the composers Josip Slavenski (1896–1955) and Marko Tajčević (1900–1984), prominent representatives of European interwar musical modernism.
