  • Hi GMCers!

    Our trip Around the World continues, the next stop is RUSSIA!

    Russian music includes a variety of styles: from ritual folk songs to the sacred music of the Russian orthodox church, and also included the legacy of several prominent classical and romantic composers.

    Folk songs and dance ensembles present old country repertoire with songs often blending pagan roots and Christian symbolism, but among the many musical sub-genres related to traditional Russian music, my favorite is Russian Romance!
    Romance as music genre is a traditionally Russian type of music that touch the soul, and is composed for accompaniment of one instrument, mainly piano or guitar (in Russian Gipsy romance especially) but some can also be accompanied with an orchestra.
    If you've ever heard the song "Oci ciornie"(Black eyes), you'll know what I'm talking about.

    For this occasion, I chose incredible Russian Gipsy traditional song "Two Guitars" in a slightly modified arrangement.

    This piece used standard EBGDAE tuning.
