Herman Safonov, Helena Strogan. Grieg, Brahms, Galperin.
Classic music is one of those domains of art where borders among countries have long ago been crossed and continue dissolving every second. Norway, Germany, Russia (France) intersect on this disc due to performance mastery of Ukrainians, and once again it becomes obvious that in the space of art names of countries are only conditional labels, no more. The main thing is the music and those feelings that it is able to evoke. At least, in such cases as this one when music is so deep and wide, expressive, strong. And it is nice that the issue here is mastery of not only composers but also of performers the intensity of impression created depends immediately on their understanding, perceiving, interpretation. Critics call the duet Safonov-Strogan a bright phenomenon of not only Ukrainian, but also of the world scene real creative force. We are not critics, not experts. But we, ordinary listeners, are really strongly impressed by music performed by this duet, it makes us feel and empathize. This is the feeling as if you look at a picture painted in cool tones and suddenly you understand that it is warm, very saturated emotionally. Then the colors start creating another pattern... Actually, that is why it seems to us that this disc can become a source of significant pleasure for experienced connoisseurs as well. And that's what we wish you.

Vitaliy Sobolev, Yevhenia Nesterenko. Mykola Lysenko: Works. /digi-pack/.


This disc was created on the eve of Mykola Lysenko's anniversary and, perhaps, it should be emphasized that it is work by young performers. It's nice both because they have managed to record and release this program, and because they chose him Lysenko. Let us just keep it in mind that one can talk about it, or one can do it. And it is done well.

Herman Safonov, Helena Strogan. Berezovsky, Schubert, Ischenko.


"The duo of H. Safonov and H. Strogan, according to composer Stankovych, is the highly-professional ensemble of musicians, who differ due to their rich culture, nice understanding of style and form, delicate test, capability of expression of wide imagination and emotional spectrum: from the finest lyricism to wild wide-open emotion..."

Natalia Tolmachova, Olga Shutko. Romantic Cello. /digi-pack/


The violoncello here lives a saturated live, breathes full breast, flies freely, whispers gently a great number of colors and emotions are incarnated skillfully, exactly, elegantly. Yes maybe, it is elegance that may be called one of main features of the album.

Myroslava Kotorovych, State chamber ensemble "Kyiv Soloists". Sotvorinnya. /digi-pack/. (Creation)


...music in their performance sounds bright, enchanting and intimate. They play as though for the whole world but also as if only for you and only now. However, the listener must also conscientiously perform his/her attentive, concentrated and relaxed work otherwise, honest exchange will not be possible. Not to speak to listen.

Yuriy Shutko. Yuriy Kot. The Prayer to Orpheus.


The disc includes works by people each of whom not only enriched, completed the music world but also made a qualitative step forward, showed new vectors of development. However, probably, it is worth listening to these works as though you did not know names of the composers. Let this music itself speak about the reason, talent and beauty of this world...
