the horse



Выйду ночью в поле с конем
Кубанский казачий хор

“Kon’” (“The Horse”) or better known as “Vyydu noch'yu v pole s konem” (“ I’ll go out at night to the field with the horse”) is a very popular Russian song. Many people believe that this is some old folk song. Surprisingly it isn’t. The text was written in 1993 by Alexander Shaganov and the music by Igor Matvienko for the Russian band “Lyube”.  

In this case it’s a good example of recreating Russian traditional musical motives. I post here the performance of the Kuban Cossack choir which I like best of all but there are different versions of it (including the original).
