Window to Ukraine
The programme includes compositions for piano solo as well as violin and piano duo written by prominent Ukrainian composers, including Mykola Lusenko, Levko Revutsky, Viktor Kosenko and Myroslav Skoryk.
These important figures of the Ukrainian musical culture mastered their compositional styles through an inseparable fusion of musical folklore with the professional classical music style. They skilfully combine lyricism, breadth and rich emotion, which are formed through expressive melodic units and complex rhythmic figurations with saturated harmonies.
Contrasting in mood and character, these enchanting musical compositions bring the listener into a cosy setting, flavoured by the herbal chay of the Carpathian mountains.
