Gareth added the following note re song 2
“One note to choir is in 2nd piece
a) Figure 15 – the last quaver should be an ‘F’, not a ‘D’ as played
b) 2 bars before Figure 16 – last note is a crotchet ‘A’, not A and F quavers as played.”
Brian sent us this link to his preferred clip of this piece sung by a Russian Choir. This is the two-piano arrangement by Gryaznov that we are using, though the first song is performed slower than we will perform it: CLICK HERE
SUGGESTED LEARNING AID: Audio pronunciation by Ralph’s Russian teacher (yes, I am impressed too) in line with native Russian speakers. Health Warning – We do know that we need to be careful on pronouncing unstressed ‘o’ not as a strong ‘a (NOT line in English ‘father’ but more neutral….and obey Brian’s every command on this matter…
Russian Song 1 Cherez rechku
Russian Song 2 Akh ty, Vanj-ka
Russian Song 3 Bielilitsi, rumianitsi
3. West Side Story Choral Suite, arr. Mac Huff
Members can source this anywhere online but it must be the Mac Huff arrangement. Many allow download of pdf but often in minimum batches of 5-8. Sheet Music Plus seems to be one of the most reasonable and allows download without a minimum order number.
