Programme Note:
An Evening in a Russian Village was a work that composer León Zuckert began in 1942 but was forced to abandon. He completed the work in 1984, and it was premiered the next year by the Shevchenko Ensemble in Toronto.
The piece is comprised of two movements: a "Chant Expansif" (Spacious Chant) and "Dance Vif" (Lively Dance). Each section is characteristically Russian - a slow, almost melacholy chant; a dance written on folk idioms, the mandolins at times imitating balalaikas.
