Hungarian Dance no. 5 in f sharp minor (g minor in orchestral form) is the most famous of all these dance melodies and was orchestrated by Parlow.
Hungarian Dance no. 6 in D flat major (D major for orchestra)has a very changeable character, between lyrical song-like passages and fast moving percussive sections.Hungarian Dance No. 6 in D major
Hungarian Dance no. 16 in f minoris one of the only few of this set that is an original orchestration. Perhaps a little less known and performed than the others mentioned,Brahms himself changed this from a piano version to an orchestral piece! This piece has much contrast again between these slower melodies in the winds and strings and the bouncy dances that are faster and more lively.Hungarian Dance No. 16
