Slavic Tango: Last Sunday

This haunting Polish tango was composed in 1936 by Jerzy Peterburski. Today it goes by its adopted Russian name Утомлённое Солнце (Weary Sun). The original title of Nikita Mikhalkov’s movie “Burnt by the Sun” (Утомлённые солнцем) is inspired by this song and carries an almost identical title. This is to mourn this past Sunday, but also to pave the way, and set the mood, for the Tale of Tales.
