Scènes de la csárda No 3 'Maros vize', Op 18
No 3 begins with a tremolo imitation of the cimbalom in the piano accompanying an improvisatory section for the violin. After the appearance of the first theme, a cadenza-like passage evokes the title of this piece with the water-like flow of ascending and descending arpeggios ending in harmonics. This leads into the melody ‘Slowly flows the Bodrog’ by the composer Miska Borzó, written in 1859. (The Bodrog is a river in north-west Hungary which flows through the town of Sárospatak.) A slightly varied version of this melody was also used by Brahms in his first Hungarian Dance published in 1869. Variations employing double-stops, plucked chords and arpeggiations lead into the third and final melody, introduced by the piano and accompanied by a high trill on the violin.
