The Sokalsky Quartet. Koljady. (Christmas Carols)

The Sokalsky Quartet. Koljady. (Christmas Carols)
The idea of forming exactly this content of a Christmas album might seem to be lying on the surface. But, strange enough, anything of this kind happens not that often it is actual both for Ukrainian music, and for the world one in general. Sorry, Ive forgotten to say this Ukrainian album of The Sokalsky Quartet contains Christmas songs of far not only Ukrainians. You will come across Christmas carols of France, England, Wales, Sweden, Austria, the USA, Spain, Germany here honestly speaking, the very list inspires respect. Moreover, all the songs are performed in original languages and this is, you should agree, a piece of work. And it was worth it the disk acquired additional dimensions, new colors of joy. I think that you understand to what extent such approach enriches both the very idea, and the internal worlds of the audience and performers. In the end, this whole project of bringing different peoples together under the same music roof is surprisingly warm and true. It is difficult to think about an idea that would meet the spirit of this holiday better the holiday of Birth of new love, new world, new joy. Because, whatever languages we might speak, the language of the open heart is the same for all people. Fortunately. And for this reason, in spite of everything, we still understand each other. Sometimes. For example when someone sings in this language. As The Sokalsky Quartet.

Yuliya Roma. Raduysya. Ukrainian carols. /digi-pack/. (Rejoice)

To enrich them with modern colors without destroying the subtle paths of the light joy inherent in Christmas carols and shchedrivkas which is not an easy task. Since it requires great attention and tolerance. Finally, it just requires love for this music, for the roots and love that is creative. And it seems they have succeeded.

Marinita. Marinita. /digi-pack/.

Marinita is, in fact, Maryna Zakharova, who was the heart of the very original project Anno Domini. So, Marinita is a certain development to the story, testing herself in a new, even more open format: with the opportunity to collaborate without any special linking to a certain composition. The debut album under the new name...

Yuriy Kovtun. BraviBelli.

...the album at once creates elated, festive mood but in a surprising way. In the correct way. Because, although about a half of the compositions can hardly be called merry ones a smile is very expressly felt in them. Somewhere dim, somewhere transparent, somewhere dreamy, somewhere thoughtful but it is present in each piece, and it warms.

Olexa Kabanov. Ambrelyre. Polyphonic wheel lyre.

Far not every musician is able to breathe in real life into age-old instruments, to let them sound brightly, deeply not with glass strasses, but with jewels. Olexa Kabanov, no doubt, is. In his performance traditional melodies sound as if they did not have hundreds of years behind their back to that extent they are live, close, and warm.

Run. Over the Border.

In the world, certainly, there are quite a lot of people who play Celtic music and even more say that they play it. But not everyone is able, having taken a correct basis, to correctly invest his or her own breathing into it so that the harmony really came to life. Rune you will hear that yourself taught their music not simply breathing...

World known dances.

The name of a disc speaks for itself. Here are hopak, sirtaki, lezginka, hava-nagila. Executed on a synthesiser, these melodies are intended rather not for domestic listening, but for use at lessons of dances, or in the dramatised performances or concerts at school or kindergarten.

Olexa Kabanov. Wind from the Orient.

It seems that every musician who follows the way of self-perfection early or late faces the music culture of the East and gets penetrated with it. In the end, it is difficult to stay indifferent to this beauty. Thus, the only thing left is to let it in, let it through and let it go. Evidently, Olexa succeeded in it you will hear that yourself.
