Vasyl Lytvyn. Oy polety halko. (Hey, Fly the Daw)

Vasyl Lytvyn has already been singing for almost fifty years but a disc with his pieces has been released only now. It is possible, sure, to complain on that score for during the time that has passed a lot has been done, and it would be a pity if his achievements were lost. But it is also a reason to be glad as well because if there is beginning, continuation may follow. Let's hope that it will be continued, that new discs will appear in the end, Vasyl Lytvyn is one of those who always try to approach the matter of kobza-playing creatively, to extend horizons. He has already created a lot of author arrangements of classic songs however, he has also created quite a lot of absolutely new pieces based on poems by the best modern poets, among whom there is also his wife, Antonina Lytvyn. In fact, repertoire of virtually any kobza-player includes a number of his own pieces but for Vasyl Lytvyn the number of such pieces reaches a hundred, and this must be already an exception, not a rule. Moreover, he also has a pleasant performance manner. Mostly, he sings softly, lyrically, but from time to time some internal power breaks through and you feel this man's hands are able to hold not only a music instrument... It seems for some reason that the same or, maybe, greater hidden power was characteristics of kobza-players of the past. In the end, they were singing the truth and this has never been a business for weak ones.

Bandura-Players Trio of the Ukrainian Radio. Melodiji ridnoho kraju. (Melodies of the Native Land)


If we are not mistaken, you now see already the second album by this trio it's nice. Because you start listening and immediately you are shrouded by such spring, real magic, that you don't want to say or do anything only to listen. Still, in sounding of the bandura there is some lightness and clarity, which is able to raise you unnoticed over the earth..

National Honored Bandurist Capella. P.3. /digi-pack/


The release consists of four discs of premium design. And, though each of them is independent and complete, we still recommend those interested to buy all the four collections. Figures of an epic scale require extensive canvas and great attention but there is nothing to compare with the experience of getting acquainted with them.
