Tune of the Day: Evening in Transylvania

by Béla Bartók, transcribed for flute and piano

This piece, alternating two Hungarian folk tunes, is taken from Béla Bartók's 10 Easy Pieces for piano, composed in 1908. It was later orchestrated by the composer himself as the first movement of the Hungarian Sketches (1931), and has since become one of his most popular pieces.

Thanks to István for suggesting this tune!
