Dances with Winds is based on folk tunes from three very different European regions. Movement 1, Gaida, is named after the Macedonian bagpipe, which is less strident that the Celtic bagpipe. The two famous bagpipe tunes that are used show that a gaida can sound either very plaintive or very joyful. Movement 2, The Irish Star, uses the well-known Irish folk tune 'Star of the County Down.' Most often played in march tempo, this tune also can be performed as a waltz. Both versions are used here. Movement 3, Serbian Dance, is a very fast folk dance called a 'kolo.' This particular tune is often referred to as 'Ciganski Urnebes.' Urnebes is a very popular type of Serbian salad, and Ciganski means 'Gypsy,' so this wild dance is a 'Gypsy Salad.-.
