Quick Overview

A Balalaika is a type of Russian folk stringed instrument. They come in a variety of sizes and can have full orchestras of these instruments. The music they play has a distinctly Russian folk music sound and composer James Meredith has worked to present this style in a modern concert piece. The work is a festive dance-like piece and contains quotes throughout of famous Tchaikovsky themes in order to help give it that Russian flavor. Balalaika is a different and refreshing choice for your next concert.
