||Brahms, Johannes (biography)|
|The Artist:||German composer and pianist. Wrote four symphonies, each a masterpiece and many piano and chamber works.|
|Composition Info:||This piece comes from a set of 21 lively dance tunes based mostly on Hungarian themes. All of his dances were composed for the piano. Brahms wrote orchestral arrangements for No. 1, No. 3 and No. 10. Other composers have orchestrated the other dances.|
Number 5 was based on the csárdás by Kéler Béla titled "Bártfai emlék" which Brahms mistakenly thought was a traditional folksong.
