PREVIEW
'Hungarian Pictures', sometimes also referred to as 'Hungarian Sketches', is a suite for orchestra by Hungarian composer Béla Bartók. The suite consists of orchestrations of earlier short pieces for piano composed between 1908 and 1911. All five have folk-like flavours, even though most have original themes. The original piano pieces were created during Bartók's journey around Romania and Hungary, when he started collecting and arranging folk music that further transformed his somewhat Lisztian early style into the style he came to develop.
The suite consists of five movements: 'An Evening in the Village', 'Bear Dance', 'Melody', 'Slightly Tipsy' and 'Swineherd's Dance'. Dutch arranger Andreas van Zoelen transcribed the 'Hungarian Pictures' for Symphonic Band.
