GUEST,Alan folk song used in Stravinsky's Firebird (31) RE: folk song used in Stravinsky's Firebird 10 Nov 07


Mick, thanks, but I had already come across the article "The Music Of Igor Stravinsky And His Influence On 20th Century Popular Music" which only identifies it as a melody from the Balakirev Anthology (1873), but it does not provide a title or any of the words. And, yes, Peace, the title is exactly what I'm needing to make it easier to track down the complete melody--I was hoping someone might know it. And, yes, Manfred (Leadbelly) he drew from hundreds of folk melodies, but we do know the melody he chose; it's a matter of matching it with the authentic Russian folk song, with its title, text, and melody--which is what I'm hoping someone still may be able to provide. Thanks to all...and hoepfully someone will still be able to provide the answer.

Alan
