Mosquito Dance, and Other Tales

Music tells a tale! Selected from Béla Bartók’s 44 Duets for Two Violins, this set of twenty-five pieces, each based on a peasant folk melody, is a series of miniatures: a mosquito dance, a wedding song, a march, a lullaby.

We’ve arranged the pieces to tell an overarching tale, a love story that begins on May Day and ends in surprise. These charming duets, as short as twenty-seven seconds, as long as two minutes, delight the ear and the imagination. We dare you not to tap your foot!
