Korobeïniki – Transcription for Two Guitars

Korobeïniki – Joe Perkins.

This arrangement is based on a transcription of a solo Balalaika performance by Oleg Kouzmitchenko. Kouzmitchenko’s performance demonstrates virtuosic counterpoint, variation, and extended technique; thus lends itself perfectly to an arrangement for two solo guitars. The idioms of the balalaika, such as economic melodic writing and incidental harmonies remain, yet with the addition of several more guitar-specific techniques such as multiple stopping.
