Как только увидел его на сайте сразу заказал. В музыке ощущается глубина и вязкость воды. На альбоме смесь нойза, эмбиента, эксперимента. Альбом классный.


H. Mayboroda. "Mylana", opera for 4 acts. (2CD).
  , Oslo, Norway
12-06-2011 22:54

Heorhy Mayboroda (1913-1992) is not a name audiences in the West will be familiar with. His compositional style (at least on the evidence of Mylana) is conservative to the extent that it must be called anachronistic. There are few passages here that would sound out of place in a Rimsky opera, for instance - the tonal and harmonic language is romantic through and through. Still, how could that be used as a criticism when Mayboroda does it so well? Mylana is a hugely enjoyable, thoroughly attractive opera, with lots of orchestral color, memorable themes, rousing choral scenes and real dramatic impact, and is strongly recommended to anyone with an interest in romantic opera - I count it as one of the most enjoyable discoveries I have made in quite a while.

One major drawback is, of course, the lack of documentation accompanying this release. No libretto, not even a synopsis, no information on the composer or the work, or even the performers. You'll just have to live with that. It is hence somewhat hard to follow the story (fortunately the sheer resourcefulness of Mayboroda's writing will keep the listener engaged all the same).

On a more positive note, the performances are excellent. To be honest I was a little wary when purchasing this release - I was unfamiliar with the composer, had never heard of most of the performers, was unfamiliar with the label, and only really knew that it was a recording from the seventies. No need to worry about any of that. The performances are uniformly good, often excellent, both from singers, orchestra and chorus (this is a first-rate, well-prepared performance). The sound is really good as well, and certainly much better than one could have feared. It is clear, warm and well-balanced - you won't mistake it for a contemporary studio recording, true, but it is absolutely no obstacle.

In short, and despite the absence of a libretto, I'll give this one a hearty recommendation, and I sincerely hope that more music by this composer will be made available (Melodiya recorded at least some back in the day).


Bohdana Pivnenko, Valeriy Matiukhin, Valentyn Sylvestrov. Fleeting Melodies. (premium release). /digi-pack/
  Renato Borges , Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
06-06-2011 22:41

I can't really put into words what the music of Fleeting Melodies means to me. I got in touch with it about a year ago and all the music I compose is now under the influence of it. The smooth quality of it, the slightest touch of such beauty and the ability to achieve it is of such rarity that this is something to treasure. It's one of those moments that you have to quiet yourself and pay attention just because there's so much into these humble sounds, these fragile and beauty structures, that anything you'll do is enough to disrupt them. You need a lot of respect for music to listen to these pieces and that's what I'd recommend to someone who doesn't know Silvestrov's music. Just let it breathe and surround you.

I was the happy buyer of the last copy available. It was a gift (I know, I know, how could I not keep it...), but I know it will be very well kept.


Oksana Zabuzhko. Muzey pokynutykh sekretiv. (h). /7th edition/. (Museum of Abandoned Secrets)
  , Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine
21-05-2011 19:27

Потрясающая книга!!! Несмотря на солидный объем, большое количество ярких и пространных описаний, читается легко, оторваться не могла . Потрясает богатство и красота языка, интересно выписанные герои. Произведение очень многомерное, касающееся болевых точек нашей истории и нашей жизни.
Думаю, это выдающийся роман, который когда-нибудь обязательно войдет в школьную программу.


Jamala. For Every Heart. /digi-pack/
  , Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine

Да, ребята!!! Диск просто замечательный! Музыка живая, песни все позивные!!! Голос Джамалы - это музыкальный инструмент, который в мелодии главный, от прослушивания которого не хочется отрываться ни на секунду. Эта певица уникальна и тем, что она любой стиль музыки может превратить в джазовое исполнение, живое и настоящее... Не зря классика и джаз считаются той музыкой, которая обогащает интеллект, заставляет радоваться жизни и почувствовать вкус жизни уже в самом существовании.

ТАК! Чудово! Ви як завжди молодці - оперативно виконали замовлення і прийшло воно вчасно! Вже років з 3ри користуюсь послугами УМКИ, Не шкодувала і не шкодую. А щодо продукту - то вельми нормально, навіть добре, за відсутності якісної української мультиплікації. Для всіх любителів Лиса Микити: дотепність, легкість, здоровий глузд.

Надзвичайно сподобалося! Написано дуже професійно, фахово, цікаво і водночас, доступно та популярно для всіх, хто цікавиться історією нашої країни і хоче розібратися у її сьогоденні.
Як важливо, щоб ми усвідомлювали хто ми і звідки, щоб історичні події та постаті відкривалися нам неупереджено і правдиво.
Велика подяка авторові!!!
