Modest Mussorgsky’s “Hopak” is a peasant-style folk dance for the late- intermediate pianist. This high-energy Russian dance leaps from the page with vibrant rhythmic motifs and percussive effects. Susan’s lively percussive MIDI orchestration enhances this rowdy, exuberant piano solo while providing a strong and boisterous framework. This arrangement can be performed as a solo or as a chamber work with SuperScore providing the accompaniment. Both the solo and the orchestral tracks were recorded by the arranger. The consemble tracks are playable in SuperScore or on any keyboard that has General MIDI (GM) sounds.
