The first performance of Kamarinskaya folk dance

27 March, Friday

On March 27, 1850 the Kamarinskaya folk dance and the Aragonese Jota of Mikhail Glinka were performed for the first time

Glinka's Kamarinskaya, written in 1848, was the first orchestral work based entirely on Russian folk song, where this genre of compositional principles dictated the form of the music. It became a touchstone for the following generation of Russian composers ranging from the Western-oriented Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky to the group of nationalists known collectively as The Five — a circle of composers in Saint Petersburg.
