ACCIDENTAL WALTZ – beloved by Russians WWII 1940s song (ENG SUBS)! Russian Music & Film Festival #2
RUSSIAN MUSIC & FILM FESTIVAL
Случайный вальс – ACCIDENTAL WALTZ!
with ENG SUBS!
I love waltzes, and this is one my favorite Russian songs of all time. Written in the early 1940s, during the brutal WWII and invasion of Russia by German Nazis, it is ageless, being one of the most romantic, positive and love-inspiring songs ever.
The song was given a new life by Timur Vedernikov’s all-USSR flashmob I mentioned in the SMUGLIANKA/festival opening post. Thanks to the generous sponsorship by the Russian energy giant RosAtom, we can enjoy it with very good English subs.

Both the tune and lyrics are romantic, sweet and haunting, and it’s amazing how seamlessly they blended different voices, musical instruments, tones and tempos from all corners of Russia and the former USSR republics. The scenery is also magnificent, as professional and aspiring musicians, as well as simple people whole love to sing and play, come together! Below the video I’ll give you some highlights!
Participants from all corners of Russia – cities, towns and villages, plus from Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and my beloved Odessa, Ukraine.
