A collection of three Ukrainian folksongs, each with a very distinctive flavor, this is a lovely medley for young string orchestras. The first, Soldier s March, is a children s song. Violas, cellos and basses capture the sounds of a four-part men s chorus. The second, Wedding Song, is a lively folksong, which was also used by Stravinsky in Petrouchka. Kolomeka, the final section, is a rowdy song that again features the low strings.
