    The Children of Chernigov


    Composed by Steve Robson specifically for the Flexi-Collection World Tour Series.  This piece is a tribute to the children still affected by the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear disaster. Chernigov is an area, originally part of the USSR, now Ukraine, originally inhabited by Cossack tribes. This piece is a “Cossack Dance”, which starts slowly in a minor key, and then shifts to the tonic major for a lively dance. Each part includes a rudimentary theory reference sheet and Learn Together Moments for group warm-ups; the score also includes background information and Check It Out ideas to encourage the players to find out more.
