Balalaika (No. 2 from the choral poem "Lagoda")
Performance notes: The nonsense syllables “trendi-brendi” imitate the strumming of a Russian folk instrument, the balalaika. The consonants must be percussive, and the r’s rolled or trilled, so these words do not end up sounding like “trendy brandy,” spoken by an American.
