: RUSSIAN FOLK SONGS

Sung by MARIE RABENECK
Korovoushka ..(Traditional Russian Folk Songs)
Noch Temna. .....(Traditional Russian Folk Songs)
Sharaban ..... (Traditional Russian Folk Songs) Ty napomnila ..... (Traditional Russian Folk Songs) Odnosvoucho gremit ..(Traditional Russian Folk Songs)
Dvo gitary ....(Traditional Russian Folk Songs)
(Accompanied by two Guitars)
' Korovoushka ' is an old peasant song. of which the refrain is ' All because of a little brown cow.'
' Noch Temna furnishes a striking contrast to the good humour of the first. Beginning ' The night is dark and endless,' it is the pathetic plaint of a young woman who has been unhappily married against her will.
' Sha -aban.' The name of the third song looks as though Russia had borrowed it from a more familiar tongue. It means ' the jaunting car,' and the song is a merry one describing the starting off for a trip.
' Ty napomnila.' Again, this has a pathetic note. It may be translated: You have awakened old memories.'
' Odnosvouchno Gremit ' is an older and more authentic version than the one usually sung ; it goes ' Monotonously rings tha little bell.'
' Dve gitary ' again looks unlike typical Russian. It means, as on) might guess, 'two guitars,' and is a favourite song of the Russian gypsies.
The songs are all genuine traditional folk songs of Russia, and are all to be accompanied by two guitars. Tho singer is one who knows these songs intimately and is well qualified to sing them in tho real traditional spirit. They are all to be sung in Russian.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
