    This has to be one of the best orchestral pieces ever written. Best suited for a full orchestra. The audience will leave humming the tunes.

  • April 13, 2007 Tricky Tune

    This is very tricky, but lots of fun. My chamber orchestra really loved this song. It may seem slow, but watch out for the end. Have fun.

  • April 13, 2004 A very catchy tune!

    This song is very smooth and catchy and if the orchestra plays it well you can really hear the Russian sailors dancing on the deck of their boat.
