Russsian composer Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov is mainly known from the orchestral suite Caucasian Sketches, which includes the much-excerpted Procession of the Sardar. Turkish Fragments, an orchestral suite in four movements for large orchestra written in 1930 and published in 1931. All of the movements use material drawn from Azerbaijani, Turkish, Uzbek and Kazakh folk music. The Caravan has a steady ambitious beat and a characteristic Turkish melody that goes on for the entire piece. At Rest is rhythmic but tranquil, with a central section of a livelier nature. Night is a peaceful, more quiet part and respects its name. Festival closes this suite. It consists of a dance, sounds upbeat and at times peaceful.
