Cossack Dance Composed by Tchaikovsky. Arranged by Sandra Dackow. For Full Orchestra. Published by Tempo Press. (Catalog # 10200107)

The perfect match-up - Tchaikovsky, Sandra Dackow and The Ukraine!  This Cossack Dance, or Hopak, is from Tchaikovsky's opera, Mazeppa, based on the Alexander Pushkin story about Peter the Great battling the invading Swedish army led by King Charles VII.  This dance is from a party in Act I of the opera where the men are showing off their athleticism by dancing and leaping for the women.  Strings have lots of off the string eighth note staccatos and on the string sixteenths with lots of bow.  If you are able to play it fast enough, the brass can double tongue some of their fanfare sections. First violin, cello and bass have position work and there is an optional part for harp (pedal or lever) if you've got one.  Sandra Dackow at her full orchestra finest.
