Description How are we joking? We tell each other jokes, some funny stories. And as the joke of the composers? Of course, they also know how to tell jokes. But they also do it with music. They write humorous pieces. These are small, fun, entertaining plays. This genre was addressed by various composers at the time. You've probably heard the "joke" by Bach, humoresque by Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Shchedrin.
But the composer Vyacheslav Kruglik wrote a humoresque for xylophone and folk orchestra. He decided that this instrument, with its funny "clacking" wooden sound, was very well suited for the role of a cheerful storyteller. And the folk orchestra will help the xylophone. This is a modern, very powerful orchestra, with a drum set and an electric guitar. He is subject to almost any music. And in this play, he will accompany the xylophone, sometimes, however, inserting his "weighty" statements.
