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.
