Pietari Inkinen Conductor
Hungarian Dance No. 1 is one of 21 Hungarian dances composed by Johannes Brahms - a set of short pieces for piano that various composers later orchestrated.
The dances were inspired by traditional Hungarian folk music and are often characterised by lively rhythms and spirited melodies.
