The score of "Hungarian Tunes" is distinguished by a variety of timbre combinations, transparency, a complete lack of viscosity and heaviness, the organic nature of orchestral development. Intended for violin solo and orchestra, this composition was a kind of preparation for the Violin Concerto; it is more modest in scale and, at the same time, differs by a great variety in details. The violin part is inventive and simple; nowhere in conflict with the nature of the instrument, the composer extracts the most unexpected timbre effects from it: the violin sounds like a flute, then like a harp.
Another important feature of the “Hungarian tunes” is the captivating play of rhythms that are Mari-Hungarian in origin. The basis for the rhythmic variation was already given by the folk melodies themselves, exceptionally richly ornamented. Elastic-dance, recitative-improvisational, song - they all differ in energy and liveliness of rhythmic development.
Parts of "Hungarian Tunes" are diverse in nature. So, the basis of the second part is the exquisite dance of the solo violin. The rapid movement of the dance theme of the fourth part. Another dance is the theme of the fifth part, resembling a graceful ballet intermezzo, but also featuring signs of folk dance. The finale begins with the dance theme.
