Little Birch Tree” is a well-known folk song from Russia, in which a singer plans to make a balalaika from the wood of the tree. Tchaikovsky used the melody in the finale of his Fourth Symphony. This arrangement was created for performance by young string players of varying abilities—note that Violin 2 uses only D, E, G, A, and B. The phrases are three measures long and attacks should be legato throughout, and the penultimate quarter note of each phrase is "leaned" on.
