Kyiv Camerata. Alexander Levkovich. Chamber Works.
"Olexander Levkovych's stile can be characterized as vivid, colorful and original. His works are composed in a very modern manner utilizing a serial technique, while being simple and romantic. He applies the timbers of different instruments very well and experiments with orchestral sounds.

Elegy of Sorrow, words by Joseph Brodsky and Vladimir Nabokov, was written in 1993 at the request of Gennadiy Rozhdestvensky for the Stockholm Philarmonic Orchestra. The piece was performed in 2001 in Kyiv, by the "Kyiv Kamerata" conducted by Valeriy Matyukhin.
Chamber Cantata 1, words by Federico Garcia Lorca, was written in 1987 at the request of Valeriy Matyukhin and performed by the "Kyiv Kamerata".
Olexander Levkovych moved to Israel in 1990 and, in 1992, to Ontario, Canada. He was awarded a diploma of the IBLA Italian international composer's competition (1996), while in 2001 he won prize for the best music at the Nickel Film and Video Festival, an international cinema festival of documentary films in Canada. In 2006 he became composer-in-residence of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra (Ontario, Canada)." Hanna Lunina, musicologist (information from the release's polygraphy)

Soloists: Valeriy Buymister (baritone), Bohdana Pivnenko (violin), Dmytro Tavanets (piano), Oleksiy Vertynsky (narrator).
