Our journey around the world begins in the Wild West. The music begins with fantastic solo cellos, then gets faster and faster to the end. Watch out for the Lone Ranger theme (trrrm trrrm trrrm tm tm…..)

In the Steppes of Central Asia
Spooky desert music now, with a beautiful folk tune
Next we follow the life of Lieutenant Kije, including the beautiful Romance and the very well known Troika.
You will recognise the tunes in our final piece. It begins with a resounding brass fanfare, followed by jolly tunes which dance around the orchestra. We’ll send you away with your feet tapping!
