Hungarian Dance (Danza Hungara) on accordion

The Hungarian Dances (German: Ungarische Tänze) by Johannes Brahms (WoO 1[1]), are a set of 21 lively dance tunes based mostly on Hungarian themes, completed in 1869.

They vary from about a minute to four minutes in length. They are among Brahms' most popular works, and were certainly the most profitable for him. Each dance has been arranged for a wide variety of instruments and ensembles. Brahms originally wrote the version for piano four-hands and later arranged the first 10 dances for solo piano.[2]

Only numbers 11, 14 and 16 are entirely original compositions. The most famous Hungarian Dance is No. 5 in F♯ minor (G minor in the orchestral version)[citation needed], but even this dance was based on the csárdás by Kéler Béla titled "Bártfai emlék" which Brahms mistakenly thought was a traditional folksong.[

Black Eyes (Ojos Negros) on accordion

The lyrics of the song were written by the Ukrainian poet and writer Yevhen Hrebinka. The first publication of the poem was in Literaturnaya gazeta on 17 January 1843.

The words were subsequently set to Florian Hermann's Valse Hommage[1] (in an arrangement by S. Gerdel') and published as a romance on 7 March 1884.

Although often characterised as a Russian gypsy song, the words and music were written respectively by a Ukrainian poet and a German composer: Florian Hermann. Additionally, Hermann's melody bears noticeable resemblance to portions of the Concerto in Esf by Franz Anton Hoffmeister. Feodor Chaliapin popularised the song abroad in a version amended by himself.

The Carnival of Venice (El carnaval de Venecia) on accordion

The Carnival of Venice, is a folk tune[1] popularly associated with the words "My hat, it has three corners." A series of theme and variations have been written for solo trumpet, as "show off" pieces that contain virtuosic displays of double and triple tonguing, and fast tempos.

Many variations on the theme have been written, most notably those by Jean-Baptiste Arban, Del Staigers, Herbert L. Clarke for the cornet, trumpet, Euphonium, Francisco Tarrega and Johann Kaspar Mertz for classical guitar, and Ignace Gibsone for piano. Chopin's "Souvenir de Paganini", dedicated to the composer and violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini, is as well a variation on this theme. A more recent piece making use of the theme, by Allen Vizzutti, called "The Carnival of Venus," is regarded as one of the most difficult trumpet pieces ever written due to range and technical demands.[citation needed]

The piece has also been arranged for tuba, notably played by John Fletcher (tubist) and available on the CD The Best of Fletch. Also Roger Bobo (Tubist) on Tuba Libera (cd). Another tubist whose performance of the piece is noteworthy is Øystein Baadsvik, a Norwegian tubist.

And is also played on accordion!!
