Ancient Music Ensemble of Kostjantin Chechenja. Music dialogues. Ukraine-Poland.

A journey is waiting for us. Kostyantyn Chechenya and his Ensemble of Ancient Music have literally created a miracle. Now, for example, we are travelling to Poland. The Poland which existed 200 or 400 years ago and performed music in a certain way. It is worth while reading something from Henrik Senkevich accompanied exactly by the records like these ones. Certainly, the life of those days was not easy. But it is pleasant to hear that even in those times there was the possibility for such tenderness. Especially against the background of solid fortresses with the walls of several meters wide. A kind of David with an indispensable Goliath beside him. As one of the songs goes, in an hour our spill blood will turn into simple ground and in two hours it will turn into flowers and grass. Tender flowers. It is worth while feast your eyes on them...
