Program Notes

Rhapsody on Russian Folksongs was composed originally for the University of Michigan Symphony Band’s tour of the Soviet Union in 1961. It was felt that a piece employing popular Russian folksongs, arranged, conducted, and performed by American musicians would serve to illustrate the universality of music to the Russian audiences. That this aim succeeded is attested to by the fact that the audience response was so enthusiastic at the premiere performance in Kiev that it was necessary for the ensemble to repeat the entire work before continuing the program.
