Score. Composed by Bela Bartok (1881-1945). 20th Century. EMB Study Scores (pocket scores). Pocket score. 28 pages
'Dances of Transylvania is the orchestral version of 'Sonatina' (1915). In Sonatina, Bartok had arranged Romanian instrumental (chiefly bagpipe) music. The three movements of the work, 'Bagpipers', 'Bear Dance' and 'Finale' comprise five melodies. Bartok explained that each of the two melodies of the first movement had been played by two pipers, the second by a peasant violinist using the lower strings of the instrument to reproduce the sounds of a bear, and the two melodies of the 'Finale' again by two violinists. In the orchestral version Bartok was out to reproduce the original sonority created by the peasants.' (HCD 32505 Bartok New Series Vol. 5, Virag Buky).
