The subtitle on Carl Oscar boije af Gennäs's manuscript is Swedish, roughly translated as 'Russian people' in reference to the source of the folk song. The song is often cited as a Russian folk song but better known as "Ikhav Kozak za Dunaj' (The Cossack Rode Beyond the Danube), a well known Ukrainian folk song. Sometimes called "Schöne Minka" (Beautiful Minka) in German. Other composers who have arranged the song include Beethoven, Hummel and more. In Bar 3, for any student unfamiliar with the symbol, the note is an F double sharp (enharmonic or same pitch as G). YouTube Lesson Link
