Description sheet music

The "Roumanian Folk Dances" originally were written for piano but have appeared in many other guises as well. This transcription for flute and guitar is based not only on the piano score but also on the composer's orchestration and Zoltán Székely's transcription for violin and piano. In these six brief movements, the folk melodies are presented with Bartók's own harmonizations in a wide variety of moods - from the ethereal Pe loc, with its melody of narrow compass and its augmented seconds, to the frenetic Maruntel, with its Lydian flavor and driving, syncopated accompaniment. Arthur Levering, Cambridge, Massachusetts
