Music for Accordion, Bayan, Harmonica, etc...

Post by caostotale » Fri Aug 23, 2013 6:58 pm

Being interested in Russian/Ukrainian/etc... folk songs, I've inevitably come across countless volumes of compositions, arrangements, etc.. for instruments of the free-reed aerophone variety. While I'm certain there's very few (if any!) people who play this instrument on this forum, perhaps this will still be of some interest for anyone who likes folk/dance music:

While the first volume I posted (vol. 5) focused on music from the Soviet region, the volumes in this particular series much more commonly mix together works from all sorts of different sources, including arrangements of standard baroque/classical/romantic repertoire works (often including what the Soviet publishers often referred to as 'Russian composers', a category for the likes of Glinka, P. Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, etc.., anybody from before 1917), folk songs from outside of the USSR, and so forth.

This volume is one from a series of bayan anthologies dedicated to popular 'light music' pieces. I've heard a few different renditions of 'Nightingale', by Alyabyev, a Russian composition that, over the years, has taken on the status of a national folk song. An orchestral version of the Baines work (excluding the intro) can be heard at:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLTDISzWfQ8

A Russian language site that I frequent has quite a few other volumes from this series, but their link is a Letitbit page that insists the downloader use some fishy-looking applet called Skymonk. As I'm not interested in seeing my computer get devoured by malware, I've chosen to abstain. If anyone else had downloaded these before Letitbit implemented that 'option', I'd love to see the other issues in this series.
