"Ave Love" is the 8th
music album by Igor Zavadsky. "Ave" (Latin: "angel's greeting") in some other languages, for example, in German, means both "hi" and "goodbye"... All recordings of the album "Ave Love" were made at Zavadsky's concerts in the period between January 21, 2008 and January 21, 2009. The first disc offers only one piece that has been included into previous albums. This is "Ave Maria" by F.Schubert. In the new version, the key accordion of Igor Zavadsky for the first time is heard in a duet with a violin. As well as in the other two pieces titled "Ave Maria", the violin party is performed by Ulrike Werner from Germany. Most compositions on the first disc are romantic pieces or retro music. "In the Mountain King's Cave" by E.Grieg is a creative experiment by Zavadsky where, apart from the orchestra and chorus, he added a party for his instrument, which highlights the main theme's sounding and makes the composition more modern.
The second CD features classic, original pieces, arrangements of the Ukrainian music performed by local musicians, and musette-style compositions by the famous accordionist from France – Gabriel Chantrieux."
