Ihor Zavadskyi is not simply an accordion player performing a broad classical repertoire. He is the only owner of "Golden Lyre" in Ukraine, which is a special prize of the World Confederation of Accordion Players, and also the owner of four golden medals won at international contests. Today Ihor Zavadskyi has five albums, and according to chronology, "Minor" is the first of them. You may buy all four albums together, of course, or you may buy them separately, but it is not worth listening to all of them at once. You should not do it not even because it is too much, but because each of them has its own mood and shade, while mixing different moods may plainly drive you to despair. At the beginning of this album, for example, toccata and fugue D-minor of Iohann Bach sound. As for me, this is quite a solemn beginning, which at once sets you into quiet and thoughtful listening. This is exactly the dominating mood of the recording – quiet one. Sometimes it is a bit pompous, but without too wild emotions. At that, it is minor, the time for thinking and observing.
