Anyone know the name?

Hey all, was just wondering if anyone knew what this piece was? i found a flash video with it (though it's a techno mix thingy) but it more or less is the song that i'm looking for the name of. It's Here I'm pretty sure it's Russian. I was watching a program about Russia and the homeless kids and how the army took on a certain amount of them and I had heard the song when they were marching so i'm guessing that it's Russian.
Thanks,
Rob

that........was.......freaky!!!!!!!!
i will never forgive you for subjecting my fragile psyche to that sight, but i will tell you what the music is.
it's a piece called "the cavalry of the steppes", an old russian folk song.
now i'm going to go and hide in a darkened room.

Name that Rugby Tune

Hi all,
I was lucky enough to be at the RWC in Australia. Prior to all the matches a piece of classical music was played jsut before the national anthems were sung.

Does anyone know the name of this music ?

I purchased the RWC 2003 Audio CD but the tune wasn't on it.

Cheers.

i'll go out on a limb here and guess that it was "World In Union", the Rugby World Cup anthem, although, not having heard the piece, i could well be wrong....
anyway, the best known version was sung by Kiri TeKanawa. hope you find what you're looking for!

Maybe telling us where you heard it would be more useful because all I could decipher from that was a beat without tone - which is probably all anyone could make out either.

I'll hazard a guess that it might be Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Sort of fits the bill...

You're too kind

I'm fond of Dvorak's Cello Concerto* - take a listen to this short snippet from the second movement. If you're interested/keen to hear more, I'm sure you'll find it somewhere. Both du Pre and Tortelier have excellent recordings available, so see if you can track down one of those.

* Lots of reasons - a peformance of this was the first concert my wife (a cellist) and I went to together when we started dating, for instance! We are going to see Yo-Yo Ma perform this and Elgar's Cello Concerto in May - we can't wait!
