Romanian Folk Dances [Flute Choir]


  • Editor's Choice

Staff Pick

“A nice Bartok arrangement”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

Nancy Nourse runs many flute choirs and she knows her stuff when it comes to arranging for them. Each of the 6 movements retains its original character and the piccolo solo in Le Poc is faithfully reproduced in the correct key. A good introduction to Bartok.

From the Publisher

The Romanian Folk Dances were originally completed in 1915 as a set of six movements for the pianoforte: Joc Cu Bata, Braul, Pe Loc, Buciumeana, Poarga Romaneasca, Maruntel. Probably the most famous version of the work is the setting for violin and piano created by Zoltan Szekely (the violinist for whom Bartok composed his Second Violin Rhapsody) which deviated in a few instances from the original piano version. It is highly likely that Bartok approved of these changes, for he adopted these when, in 1917, he created his own orchestral version. It is upon Bartok's orchestral version that this transcription for flute choir is based.
