"The ninth disc created by the National Academic Orchestra of Folk Instruments of Ukraine within the series "Melodies of Ukraine" is an interesting attempt to reproduce folk and popular authors' songs in instrumental performance only, without the vocal. Timbre richness, bright expressive opportunities of folk instruments, delicate feeling of the energy of the music material and the general emotional breathing allowed creating the song music masterpieces of the Ukrainian people. When listening to this disc, everyone will discover in him/herself and will feel an inexhaustible spiritual source and will get extraordinary aesthetical and emotional pleasure due to the harmony, raciness and diversity of senses. All human feelings, moral health, sincerity and love are conveyed in these songs. Such a disc is really needed. Because today, when Ukraine is striving and affirming common human ideals, we especially need the folk song and folk music, for it helps, in the global urbanized world, to preserve one's culture, morality and the ineradicable Ukrainian spirit."
