Musicbox (musical box)
Brahms: Hungarian Dance

Brahms adapted Hungarian themes he was well familiar with into first class classical music reflecting the influence of the Hungarian "urban" gypsy music. This is a Dance No. 5. from the Suite.

We build the musical box (a hand-powered instrument, capable of playing a short tune) in a wooden case decorated with motifs cut out with a fretsaw.
Due to the technical characteristics of the instrument, a slight metal noise is heard as it plays (metal comb teeth are plucked by metal pins while rotating the cylinder with the ratchet lever, which inevitably produces some noise). Unlike digital instruments, a mechanical musical box can never offer a clear, noise-free audio experience.
