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. Bartok originally wrote this piece for piano, and it’s tough enough to play on that instrument, let alone on violin…

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.

    I had not known how dire the state of France is in.
    Air France might cease to exist in the near future,
    massive losses and continual disruption from staff,
    oh, the shame.

    Air France-KLM reported a net loss of €269m (£238m) in the first quarter of 2018.

      An Israeli minister said the election results meant Lebanon and Hezbollah were indistinguishable.

      “The state of Israel will not differentiate between the sovereign state of Lebanon and Hezbollah, and will view Lebanon as responsible for any action from within its territory,”
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-44027973
      Hezbollah winning the greatest number of voltes in the general election in Lebanon will not please the Israeli government
      one little bit.
      I wonder when Lebanon will be come more assertive and shoot down Israeli war planes
      as they overfly Lebanon to fire rockets at Damascus?
