Romanian Instrumental is a Romanian performance piece in a bouncy dance style. I learnt it by ear from Gypsy Romani musician, notated it in this arrangement for two voices to be accessible for everyone to play. Though it would be mostly performed by Romani musicians, it is not really a Gypsy piece. Rather, Romanian Instrumental is a folk / virtuoso performance piece that contains some hints of klezmer style.
This version is for Bb instruments (Bb clarinet, soprano and tenor sax). The chords are for C instruments, suitable for accompaniment by a guitar, accordion or similar.
Get inspired… watch a performance (scroll to 2:38).
