Its three-movement form is marked by dramatic contrasts and exquisite orchestration, embodying the elegance and emotional depth of the Classical era.

Zoltán Kodály – Dances of Galánta

Inspired by the folk music of Galánta, a town in present-day Slovakia, Kodály's 1933 composition is a brilliant orchestral work that captures the spirit and vitality of Hungarian dance traditions. The piece is a vibrant tapestry of lively rhythms, colorful harmonies, and evocative melodies, showcasing Kodály's deep connection to his cultural heritage and his masterful orchestration.
