Divertimento for String Orchestra Sz. It was composed in and dedicated to the Basel Chamber Orchestra. Allegro non troppo: Typically 8 minutes long, the opening movement is presented as a waltz with specific gypsy influences evident melodically, through the use of various modes and non-traditional scales, and rhythmically, through the use of irregularly placed accents and extended syncopated rhythms. Metrically, the movement is set in shifting, regular compound meters that at times evoke both a clear or equally murky beat placement.

It was composed on commission from Paul Sacher , the pioneering conductor who commissioned so much fine music for his string orchestra in Basle, Switzerland.
Bartok was then already planning to move to the United States to escape both the gathering war clouds of Europe and the Nazi sympathizing regime of his native Hungary. He had already sent his manuscripts and papers to London, but remained at home because of the terminal illness of his mother. While taking a break from all this he visited Sacher in Switzerland and while there composed this substantial nearly 25 minute work in 15 days.
His mother died in December; Bartok finished up his personal affairs in Europe, giving his farewell Budapest appearance in October Meanwhile, the Divertimento had been successfully premiered in June in Basle.
This consolidated a trend which actually began a few years earlier. In this period it is easy to find and hear distinct tonality. The opening movement is a suave and gracefully dance-like "Allegro non troppo," full of attractive melodies, but also making highly intellectual use of canons, inversions, and other such devices.
The third movement is even more playful than the first, a bit earthier, and somewhat faster.
