PLEVNA HORNPIPE. American, Hornpipe (cut time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The title probably refers to the Siege of Plevna,a major battle of the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, fought between the allies Russia and Romania against the Ottoman Empire. The siege, which lasted five months, finally resulted in a Russian/Romanian victory and allowed for the liberation of Bulgaria. The siege was widely reported on and followed by the public in Europe and beyond.
