Nikos Skalkottas (1904-1949) was a famous greek composer, a member of the Second Viennese School. He drew his influences from both the classical repertoire and the Greek tradition. This is obvious by his work "36 Greek Dances", which are 36 compositions based on greek dances (like Dvorjak's "Slavonic Dances" and Brahms's "Hungarian Dances). The titles of each dance may refer to a region of Greece, to a type of folk dance or to a title of a folk song. The 36 Greek Dances have 3 series. This is Peloponnisiakos dance(from the region of Peloponissos), the fourth dance of the 1st series.
