The Hungarian Pictures, also known as Hungarian Sketches, are probably Bartók's most popular orchestral transcriptions. Each of the five pieces was originally conceived for the piano.

the first two, "Evening in Transylvania" and "Bear Dance," are taken from the Ten Easy Pieces (1908; Nos. 5 and 10, respectively); the next, "Melody," is No. 2 from the Four Dirges (1910), while the ensuing "A Bit Drunk" comes from the Three Burleskes (1911; No. 2), and the concluding "The Swineherd-Dance" from No. 40, Volume 2, of For Children (1908-09). All five have folk-like flavors, even though most have original themes.
