The theme carefully explored by Alfred Reed in this repertoire standard is Carol of the Little Russian Children which is an ancient Russian Christmas carol. You can hear four distinct sections originally called Children´s Carol, Antiphonal Chant, Village Song and Cathedral Chorus all joined in this continuous contemporary setting. The almost overwhelming sound picture with varied tone colors and brilliant brass choir sounds is a classic in every sense. Russian Christmas Music by Alfred Reed is a worthy addition to the Belwin Classic Band series. This recording compliments of the United States Air Force Band, Col. Lowell Graham, conductor.

The American songwriter and bandleader Jack Fina used the chromatic frenzy of the late-romantic Russian composer Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov as the basis for his Bumble Boogie in the 1930s. Fina’s paraphrase conquered the charts and is an indispensable staple of every pianist’s repertoire thanks to its well-balanced mix of genre piece and jazz standard.
Valse-Scherzo op. 34Editor: Alexander KomarovFingering: Klaus SchildeFing. vn: Ingolf TurbanAlongside the famous violin concerto, numerous other violin works by Tchaikovsky have found their way into the standard repertoire for violin. An outstanding example is the Valse-Scherzo, which sparkles with witty playfulness. He composed it in 1877 for the violinist Josef Kotek, a close friend and student. Our editor, the Russian Tchaikovsky scholar Alexander Komarov, has ensured that this Henle Urtext edition is absolutely faithful to the sources. He was able to consult all of the sources in the Russian archives and to bring clarity to the work’s complex genesis. This edition is the prelude to an edition of all of Tchaikovsky’s works for violin and piano, including the Sérénade mélancolique op. 26 and Souvenir d’un lieu cher op. 42.
This wonderful collection of music for the mandolin includes bluegrass; old-time fiddle tunes; classical music (including the complete solo part for the Vivaldi mandolin concerto and the Canzonetta from Mozart´s Don Giovanni); American, Irish, Jewish, Russian and Italian songs; reels; jigs; hornpipes; hymns and gospel songs; minstrel songs; patriotic; blues and jazz; children´s songs; and cowboy and country ballads. This collection consists of over a hundred selections in standard music notation and TAB. Lyrics for singing and chord symbols for optional accompaniment is included. Also included are tremolo exercises, a guide to fingering, chord charts for guitar and mandolin, the history of the mandolin, and interesting comments about the history and performance of each song.
The Balalaika is most often associated with Russian folklore. In The Complete Balalaika Book, concert and recording artist Bibs Ekkel shares his extensive knowledge of the Balalaika as taught in Russia today. This 160-page book is divided into four sections: an extensive Foreword, the Tutor, A Brief History of the Balalaika, and a Repertoire Section. Unlike many method books, The Complete Balalaika Book does not begin with the rudiments of music notation. Rather, the 20-page Foreword offers insights on the tunings of all the instruments in the Balalaika family, hand positions, string sources and height adjustment, and chord shapes. The author even describes how to make a bass Balalaika pick from shoe leather. The Tutor or instruction segment is written for the ´prima Balalaika´ which is correctly played with the fingers only rather than with a pick. The Tutor jumps right in with exercises and tunes in quarter, eighth, and sixteenth-note values with occasional dotted notes and syncopation. Perhaps half of the music in this section is shown in both standard notation and tablature. A glossary of musical signs and Russian musical terns is included. A Brief History of the Balalaika is well written and nicely illustrated. Very few method books contain such a comprehensive historical overview of the subject instrument. The Repertoire Section offers a valuable resource of Eastern European folk tunes. All but two selections in this section are written in both notation and tab with suggested guitar chords, the exceptions being an arrangement for Balalaika and Piano, and a Balalaika orchestra score. More than simple melody chord leadsheets, these are the author´s own arrangements of tunes for solo Balalaika and Balalaika orchestra. Access to online audio with selections performed by the author completes this highly effective instructional book.A Cossack Crossed the Danube Akh, Nastasya Baa-Baa Black Sheep Dance, Dance Dark Browed, Dark Eyed Lad Daydreams Do Not Scold Me For Czar, Motherland and Faith Go Home You Gossips God Save The Czar Goin´ Home I Loved You I Shall Go Down To The River I Was In The Garden In the Field a Birch Tree Stood It´s Not The Wind That Bends The Branch Katiusha Leaf from an Album Moonshine Polosynka The Post Troika Hastens The Slender Rowan Tree The Ural Rowan Tree Two Guitars Under The Apple Tree Varyag
Description The eclectic and versatile Mexican acoustic Guitar duo have taken the world by storm with their fiery blend of a rock and heavy metal sensibility, a Flamenco flavour and a near-telepathic virtuoso partnership on duelling classical Guitars. This songbook features standard notation and TAB for six of their best songs, as well as professionally-recorded demonstration and backing tracks, so you truly can Play Guitar With Rodrigo Y Gabriela.Featuring six of the duo´s best-loved songs, this songbook is a unique opportunity for a serious Rodrigo Y Gabriela fan to join the band, or for an aspiring guitarist to explore a very idiosyncratic style of playing. Whether it´s the heavily percussive rhythms of Diablo Rojo, the beautiful palm-muted melody of Tamacun or those sumptuously strummed chords of The Soundmaker, with this sheet music songbook you can learn every single note and chord exactly as this Latin-influenced rock band play them.Each song is transcribed in standard notation and TAB, with Gabriela´s punchy chord rhythms outlined, including where she hits the body of the Guitar or the strings. The chord symbols are included throughout, with chord boxes at the beginning of each song so that you always know exactly what to play. Rodrigo´s brilliant solos are also represented, featuring every meticulous Latin-infused note for your sheer playing pleasure. This is not just a mere songbook, though. After you´ve learned every chord and every note, while listening to the demonstration tracks to make sure you have every part right, you can use the backing tracks to isolate either track. This means you can quite literally take the place of either member, strumming Gabriela´s intense chords or picking Rodrigo´s lightning-fast solos.Songlist Diablo Rojo Hanuman Santo Domingo Tamacun The Russian Messenger The Soundmaker
