Out of B�la Bart�k's personal collection comes this 1950 Folkways release. From gypsy fiddle tunes played at breakneck speeds and in odd time signatures to lachrymose laments for dead loved ones, this album underscores Romania's sonic diversity. Wheezing bagpipes, wedding dances, and love songs are all heard in the mix. One listen to this constellation of musical sensibilities will make it perfectly clear why Bart�k so eagerly documented and felt inspired by Romanian folk music.
