Romanian Folk Dances, Sz. 56

Romanian Folk Dances (Hungarian: Román népi táncok), Sz. 56 (also BB 68) is a suite of six piano pieces written in 1915 by Béla Bartók. He later orchestrated it for small ensemble in 1917 as Sz. 68, (BB 76). The pieces are based on seven Romanian tunes from Transylvania, originally played on fiddle or shepherd's flute. The original name for the piece was titled Romanian Folk Dances from Hungary (Magyarországi román népi táncok) but was later changed by Bartók when Romania annexed Transylvania in 1918-1920.
