Dancing with the Tzars
By Karen Kyriakou
Belwin Concert String Orchestra
Full of fun while very serious, this original piece also provides cool inter-disciplinary teaching opportunities and reproducible historical notes. From rags to riches, revolutions, glorious victories, the demise of empires, traitors, conspiracies, rebellions, suspicions, abominations, heroes and heroines, the history of Russian tzars is presented in three movements. Play the music that takes you through a journey of the lives of these colorful historic figures as each instrumental part shares the melodic role.
