Rachmaninov and balalaika

Postby Marianne » Mon Jan 19, 2009 9:24 am

Yesterday was a trully magic day. My father's uncle (though he is a month fathers junior :D ) came to visit us (we've seen him ages ago. He is a balalaika player and teacher. He graduated from the Kiev Conservatory and teaches to play balalaika in the Krasnodar University of Art. He has relised three alboms already! We decided that I will make his little personal site for him, so wish me good luck.


He brought not only the family photos (the photo of my great grandfather that I couldn't even dream of, I thought no photo survived of him), but his great collection of music played on the folk Russian instruments - domra, balalaika, orchestras and bands - more than 200 albums :D
Envy me! :wink:

And of course first of all I checked for Rachmaninoff's compositions.

The most popular is Italien Polka:

Orchestre Smolensk 09 Rachmaninoff Polka Italienne Op1906

Mikhail Sentchourov 13 Rachmaninov Polka Italienne

Alexandre Paperny 18 Rachmaninov Polka Italienne

Oleg Gloukhov 06 Rachmaninoff Polka Italienne

Valery Zajiiguine 09 Rachmaninov-Echkevitch Polka Italienne

Mikhail Sentchourov 12 Rachmaninov Serenade

Orchestre Radio URSS 04 Rachmaninov Romance op1890

But the best compostition perfectly fitting the choice of the instruments is this one:
Orchestre Ossipov Rachmaninoff Chanson Russe
Orchestre Ossipov 01 Rachmaninoff Chanson Russe.mp3

Hope you will like it as much as I do!

As for the links, I was only able to listen to the last one. The first seven downloaded, but with 0 size...

A lot of folk orchestras now playing Rackmaninoff music and I was absolutely in love with Osipov Orchestra in Moscow when they play Aleko Aria !.
