orchestra populară a Filarmonicii din Oradea “Scuturatul din Sîmbăta”

Petru Bundiș “Ardelenesc din Săcădat”
from Deux virtoses du vilon Gheorghe Rada - Petru Bundiș (Electrecord (LP))
Ion Fărcaș “Doină din Năsăud, de-a lungul de pe Someș, Joc Ciobănesc din Ilva Mare”
from Rencontre avec la Roumanie: Vallée du Someș (Electrecord (LP)) —a slow song, an introductory slow processional dance, and a couple dance, from northern Transylvania. The soloist is playing a Caval, a long 5-holed shepherd's flute, which is not usually played for dance music.
