Rumanian Folk Dances

After watching this garbage from a band I used to respect many decades ago, I thought I’d try to redress the balance. This is from a post I made a few years ago called A bit of Bartok which amongst other things features Janine Jansen performing the complete Rumanian Folk Dances at the Prinsengrachtconcert in Amsterdam in 2005.

I’ll get onto what’s happening in France shortly.

With one hour to go until midnight on the last day of April 2018, I won’t be posting again until the merry month of May 2018, a month which is the 50th anniversary of the 1968 uprising in France, and which is just as pertinent now.
