Hopak (0 words)
A hopak is the traditional peasant dance of Ukraine; this "Hopak" is from Moussorgsky's opera, "Sorochinsky Fair".
Moussorgsky began writing the opera in 1874; despite encouragement from friends and benefactors, he was unable to finish it before his death in 1881.
While the rest of the opera has been largely forgotten, "Hopak" has survived the test of time (largely due to the popular piano arrangement by Sergei Rachmaninoff).
