On the Hills of Manchuria

(WIKI EnglishRussianJapenese)

"On the hills of Manchuria" (Russian: На сопках Маньчжурии, Na sopkah Manchzhurii) is a haunting waltz (i.e. a waltz composed of mostly minor notes and sub-4th octave arrangements) composed in 1906 by Ilya Alekseevich Shatrov. The original and orchestral arrangement is written in E-flat minor while the folk arrangement is in F minor.

The original title of the waltz was "The Mokshansky Regiment on the Hills of Manchuria" and referred to an incident during the Battle of Mukden, the disastrous final land battle of the Russo-Japanese War, when the Mokshansky Infantry Regiment was encircled by Japanese forces for 11 days, during which it sustained considerable casualties. Shatrov served in the regiment as bandmaster and composed the tune on returning from the war. While the regiment was stationed in Samara in 1906, he made the acquaintance of Oskar Knaube (1866-1920), a local music shop owner, who helped the composer to publish his work and later acquired ownership of it.

"On the Hills of Manchuria" achieved colossal success and Knaube boasted of having published some 82 different editions of the piece.[2] Soon after its publication, the poet Stepan Petrov, better known by the pen-name of Skitalets, provided the lyrics which contributed to its wider success. The original words concern fallen soldiers lying in their graves in Manchuria, but alternative words were adapted to the tune later, especially during Second World War.

During the 1990s the song was featured in two films. In Nikita Mikhalkov's Urga Close to Eden (1991), the drunken lorry driver Sergei has the notes tattooed on his back and later sings the song in a nightclub, with the band playing from his back. Then in the British-American Onegin (1999) it was used anachronistically as the tune played at Tatiana's naming day.

Russian composer Ilya Alekseevich Shatrov

Lyrics (Russia)

На Сопках Маньчжурии (1905)

Муз. И.А. Шатрова. Слова С. Петрова (Скитальца)

"Тихо вокруг, сопки покрыты мглой,
Вот из-за туч блеснула луна,
Могилы хранят покой.
Белеют кресты - это герои спят.
Прошлого тени кружат давно,
О жертвах боев твердят.
Тихо вокруг, ветер туман унес,
На сопках Маньчжурии воины спят
И русских не слышат слез.
Плачет, плачет мать родная,
Плачет молодая жена,
Плачут все, как один человек,
Злой рок и судьбу кляня!...
Пусть гаолян вам навевает сны,
Спите герои русской земли,
Отчизны родной сыны.
Вы пали за Русь, погибли вы за Отчизну,
Поверьте, мы за вас отомстим
И справим кровавую тризну."

1905 г.

Lyrics (English)

The Hills of Manchuria (1905)

Music by I.A. Shatrov, lyrics by S. Petrov (Skitalets)

Around us, it is calm. Hills are covered by darkness.
Suddenly, the moon shines through the clouds,
Graves hold their calm.
The white glow of the crosses—heroes are asleep.
The shadows of the past circle around,
Recall again anad again the victims of battles.
Around us, it’s calm; the wind blew the fog away,
Warriors are asleep on the hills of Manchuria
And Russian weeping is canot be heard.
Dear mother is shedding tears,
The young wife is weeping
All like one are crying,
Cursing fate, cursing destiny!
Let kaoliang’s rustling[1] lull you to sleep,
Rest in peace, heroes of the Russian land,
Dear Fatherland’s sons.
You fell for Russia, perished for Fatherland,
Believe us, we shall avenge you
And celebrate a bloody wake
1905 (From here)

ОСЕННИЙ СОН
Старинный вальс

Музыка А. Джойса
Слова Ф. Касаткина-Ростовского

Тучи низко кружат над садом,
Ветер, воя, бьет в окно…
Сердце, тоскуя, плачет о прошлом,
Призрак счастья исчез давно.

Опустел наш сад, и напрасно взгляд
Ищет солнца луч в серой дали.
Кончен сон златой, плачет сад пустой,
И в ответ ему сердце щемит.

Скрылись чудной грезы виденья,
Упоенья, нега весны,
Радость свиданий, пыл увлеченья,
Унесли вас осенние сны…

Друг мой, где ты? Прежней сказки
Нежной страстной, хоть миг верни;
Своей лаской, как луч, ясной,
Сердца сумрак ты озари.

Друг мой, где ты? Призыв страстный
До рассвета звучит, как стон,
Но напрасно жду ответа, -
Кончен светлый сон.

Тучи низко кружат над садом,
Сильный ветер гонит листы…
Сердце, тоскуя, плачет о прошлом,
Унесли всё осенние сны. (From here)

Archibald Joyce

Archibald Joyce (25 May 1873 – 22 March 1963) was an English light music composer known for his early waltzes.

He first came to prominence with the publication of his Songe d'Automne Waltz (1908) which fast became a hit. The piece is in a minor key. The melody is in a relatively low tenor register.

The following year he repeated this success with his Visions of Salome Waltz (1909) also in the same low-pitched minor-key style. He was billed by his publishers Ascherberg Hopwood and Crew as the "English Waltz King".

His music was immensely popular with dance orchestras of the period together with amateur pianists. The piano solo sheet music for his waltzes sold in very large quantities in the UK. He continued primarily with his distinctive waltzes until the start of the WW1 period. His other principal hits during this period were Dreaming waltz (1911), Charming and The Passing of Salome waltzes (1912), 1000 Kisses and Always Gay waltzes (1913) and Remembrance waltz (1914).................(WIKI).

Archibald Joyce (25 May 1873–22 March 1963, age 89) conducted a salon orchestra in Great Britain in the Edwardian era that was so fashionable for balls and dances that he was known as the "English Waltz King",[1] conducting "the first modern dance band in Britain"[2] His most familiar waltzes are "Dreaming",[3] "Songe d'Automne" ("Autumn Dream") and "A Thousand Kisses", which Charlie Chaplin incorporated into the sound track he added to his silent classic The Gold Rush.
