FOLKSONG ARRANGEMENTS

FOR VOICE & PIANO

„Our song collection for this “Folksong arrangements for voice and piano” was chosen from countries and regions that had a personal influence on us due to friends, colleagues and associates we met over the years. Our interests in those countries and those people are included here – as well as our love. The pleasure we experienced with each folk song was like traveling through those countries and appreciating their splendor.
We wish fresh encounters and discoveries for our listeners as they journey through each country. Your hometown’s folksong may also be a new revelation for you.
We wish you pleasant journey!
