FOREWORD to 1986 year Anthology III edition
-----

Part Three of the "Anthology of Compositions for Button Accordion" contains folk tunes as arranged by this country's professional composers and accordion players in the fifties, sixties, and seventies Ч conventional adaptations of songs and dances and concertante-style paraphrases by both renowned masters and younger talented musicians, resident in different republics and provinces of the USSR.

It is incontestable that the modern button accordion has been integrated into the sphere of what can be described as sophisticated chamber music, so the present-day stage in cultivating the instrument admits of judging by the standards applicable to the whole of contemporary art music. For all that, the button accordion is by no means divorced from its folk roots Ч it is still truly popular with the masses. That is why widely known songs and dances, notably unpretentious arrangements of traditional folk tunes, are absolutely indispensable to the accordionist's repertoire * .

* Some of the compositions chosen for the present publication are, as a matter of fact, original concert pieces, with folk melodies employed as themes which undergo development within the framework of a self-dependent structural conception. Yet the bulk of the volume is constituted by folk-songs arranged in a fairly straightforward and unassuming manner.

The title of each song, which, in most cases, is incidentally none other but the opening line of the lyrics, is transliterated (viz., romanized) and, in brackets and quotation marks, rendered into English by means of what might be referred to as "equirhythmic translation", that is to say, a translation which conveys not only the meaning of the original but also its metre (i. e., arrangement of stressed and unstressed syllables). The same applies to the two previous volumes of the Anthology (Part One: Moscow 1984; Part Two: Moscow 1985).Ч V. Y.
