«Ural» is one of the works of the joint program of Azat Aitkulov with the organist from Ufa, People's Artist of Bashkortostan Vladislav Murtazin. With this program the musicians went on tour throughout Russia – they were in Kemerovo, Togliatti, Samara, Ulyanovsk, Perm, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Naberezhnye Chelny and Siberian cities. The sounds of two wind instruments – the Bashkir kurai and the electronic (portable) organ «Hauptwerk» are harmoniously combined, making a fascinating effect and an indelible impression on the audience.
«In all concerts of our program during trips I play 5–6 lingering folk songs, including "Ural", briefly preceding the performance of the songs with a story about their content. Serious people always gather to listen to organ concerts, they don't need a show, they need real music, they perceive it very well», – the musician notes.
The chant of the song «Ural» is characterized by a wide range (thirteenth chord), slow tempo, pentatonic scale with major-minor variability, rich ornamental intrasyllabic chants. Almost all chants, except for the final one, have an energetic upward direction, which gives the song a pathetic excitement. The metre of a verse is iambic pentameter, the rhyme is cross, although the listener does not perceive the periodic rhyme of the verse during the lingering singing. Due to the complexity of the song, the main performers are men. But one of the main propagandists of Bashkir folklore – singer and teacher Flyura Kildiyarova – also has this song in her repertoire.
