Oleh Sozanskiy. Banduryst.

Oleh Sozanskiy. Banduryst.

I may start with the fact that he is a laureate of the first prize of S. Lyudkevych International Contest held in Canada. Or I may start with the fact that he tries to surprise his listeners with this album. And I think he has managed to do that in a full measure. Not only because he has a deep and expressive voice, though it is also very important. You want to hear that voice more and more. He surprises his listeners with his repertoire. Judge by yourself along with usual "Bandura player, a gray eagle" by Taras Shevchenko you can hear "Seasons. Spring" by Vivaldi, "Sonata C-dur" by Paganini and other interesting compositions. He uses technical facilities for chromatization of the scale of strings, so that now the compositions of Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Bortnyanskyi, Lysenko and of some modern composers get revived in his repertoire. It is worth while listening to. It is worth while listening to the way how a bandura player becomes universal he not only sings accompanied by bandura, but also performs solo and with an orchestra. Equally well. It seems to me, that this is an example of that artistic approach, due to which old things become new and new things live a long life. And live happily.

KRUT. Live Concert With Chamber Orchestra. /digi-pack/.

..competent engagement of an orchestra virtually automatically adds volume but there are nuances. In this case, this is author material, an indie project constructed around the bandura (and the ambition is to make the bandura sound modern, not emasculated) moreover, from the very beginning KRUT has been tending towards crossovers in his style solutions..

Troye Zillia. Paradise Birds. /digi-pack/.

This is a collection of Christmas songs and one tends to expect that this kind of albums are unwrapped in an unhurried way, have a kind of enlightened, relaxed moods, or even the "pink syrup". Here the musicians did it differently. From the first seconds, the percussion unequivocally hints: that will be music with a joyful drive, and so it proves later...

KRUT. Arche. /digi-pack/.

..a full-fledged author album wrapped around the bandura so that the music intertwines several styles, from jazz and soul to blues and pop funk. Thus, "Arche" appeals not only (and not so much) to the Ukrainian tradition: it is an attempt to break stereotypes and at a dialog of cultures. A worthy attempt and vivid dialog.

Georgiy Matviyiv. Exit.

The musical art of Georgiy Matviyiv is a great example of continuation of the kobzar traditions. Informal and innovational in the same time, his attitude to the instrument realized in authors plays for the bandura and in authors performance of these plays, describing ancient kobzars traditions of the attitude to bandura, as to a "loyal wife"...
