Sample

Russian Steppes

From Russian Steppes

This piece combines a slow, mournful tune symbolic of a peasant lament with this sabre-rattling cossack-prancing centre section. The bass part has been written to be accessible to those with a growing but still limited vocabulary of chords, and the preponderance of open strings means that the piece gives a rich and sustained sound even as the chords are changing. This incipit shows a rehearsal mark, which appears on each of the single-part sheets as an aid to practising.
