This set of six pieces is based on folk song melodies and dance forms from Transylvania which was annexed to Romania in 1920. The contrasting melodies were originally for violin or shepherd's flute, but the unusual harmonies are original with Bartók. The performance time for the complete set of dances is approximately 4 minutes, 15 seconds.

    This was a very nice edition, with short descriptions of the type of folk dance each piece was based on. Large type, easy to read for older eyes. Deceptively simple to play, but full of nuances (and better suited) for the advanced pianist.
