Three Balkan Dances


Three Balkan Dances were commissioned by the Cavatina duo in 2005, and recorded on their album “The Balkan Project” released on Cedille Records (Chicago, IL).  It is a collection of three folk melodies which were transcribed and arranged into full compositions, tailored to suit the duo’s virtuosity and lyricism.

In 3 movements:

i. Rachenitsa (Bulgarian dance) (3:49)  
ii. Ajde slusaj kalesh bre Andjo* (Macedonian song) (3:50)
iii. Kalajdzisko Oro (Macedonian dance)* (4:34)
