Six Romanian Folk Dances, Bartók

Hungarian composer and pianist Bela Bartok was one of the founders of the field of ethnomusicology. This study deeply influenced and inspired his distinct style of melody, rhythm, and the unique sound world created by imitating original folk instruments, and thus introduced a new form of tonality. The popular Six Romanian Dances are short, characteristic dances, each with a distinctive character and mood, and encompassing joy, mournfulness, mystery, and humor, despite their brevity.      Soyeon Lee
