Be-fore that there had been only unimportant collecting movements. Later Bla Bartk, Zoltn Kodly and Lszl Lajtha followed in Vikars steps.
Thank to them, today we can listen to these folk-songs and folk-musics and they didnt get lost. Moreover they systematized these songs. Its due to them that the system of classification of Hungarian folk-songs was developed. It was proved that this work had been complex.
