Árpád Balázs (*1937) composed the first version of the work between 1994 and 1996 for tárogató and concert band. Since this traditional Hungarian instrument is rarely found in ensembles abroad, a soprano saxophone can serve as an alternative solo instrument. The composer uses melodies from the early 18th century, from the age of Rákóczi's war of independence. An ambitious framework is given to the work by the reminiscing, solemnly flowing brass chorus, which is built of the motives of the folk song Oh, Rákóczi, Bercsényi (Hej, Rákóczi, Bercsényi). As a contrast serves then Panna Czinka's ancient ''violin lament''. Following this, in a pierced-work-like fashion, the folk song The dew of green forest (Zöld erdő harmatát) comes in, then, as the culmination of the work, the well-known, wild Kuruc dance of Csínom Palkó appears. In conclusion, Kuruc Pictures is a tastefully constructed, finely harmonised and orchestrated orchestral tableau.
