Around he began his field trips to record on wax cylinders the folk songs of the Slavic world, and later wrote a PhD dissertation on the subject.

Born in what was the sprawling Austro-Hungarian Empire, he spent his childhood in Galanta, a small town near Bratislava, in present-day Slovakia.

Dances of Galanta was composed in , and of course, reflects the music of his boyhood home in Slovakia. Strictly speaking, Dances of Galanta is not a suite of dances, but rather, is really a tone poem—a single movement work cast in episodes.

It was commissioned for the 80th anniversary of the Budapest Philharmonic Society. Much of the musical material in the work is based upon eighteenth-century Hungarian tunes called verbunkos. About a dozen members of the hussars Hungarian light cavalry led by a sergeant would literally dance, accompanied by Gypsy musicians, at first slowly and then increasingly faster.

Finally, the music would drive to a frenetic conclusion, replete with leaps and much clicking of spurs—a sure fire enticement to lead young men into military service. While not very convincing today as elements of national policy, these verbunkos are the central musical element of Dances of Galanta.
