Guitar Atlas: Russia

Russia has a deep and rich cultural tradition of artists, writers, musicians, and composers. The names "Tchaikovsky," "Mussorgsky," and "Rachmaninoff" may belong to the world, but these composers were Russian through and through. Guitar Atlas: Russia explores the country's remarkable musical heritage, covering everything from the music of Russian villages to the sacred tones and melodies adapted from ancient Byzantine modes. This will give you a deeper understanding and appreciation for a truly unique culture. Traditional Russian instruments, like the balalaika, domra, and seven-string guitar, are explained in detail, as well as the altered tunings and techniques designed to emulate them. Since folk music is such an integral part of Russian culture, this book explores familiar work songs, epic songs of the Russian bards, and romances of the Russian gypsies. Learning these songs will enrich your repertoire and give you insight into the music that has inspired some of the greatest artists and musicians in history. By the time you're done, you will have gained a fresh perspective into one of the world's greatest musical traditions and see that passion is at the heart of Russian music. The CD includes all the examples and demonstrations featured in the book.
