Oles' Zhuravchak. Singing sopilka  2.
Several years ago we proposed the first album of this gifted performer to your attention, and already then he impressed the audience with the skill of his performance and diversity of his programme. The time passed, several serious prizes were won by him at contests and festivals held both here in Ukraine and abroad. Today Oles Zhuravchak is not only a singer, he is also a teacher and a post-graduate student. It is quite understandable that his success is the result of his talent and hard work. You have a chance to appreciate both things by yourselves. I think, this chance will not be boring for you. After all, in addition to all mentioned above, he is a musician, and one may say, a universal musician. In any case, here you can hear him playing a pipe prima, alto and tenor, and playing ocarina – from prima to bass, and also playing other folk instruments – floyar, drymba, dvodentsivka and tylyntsya, as well as flute. His solo performance and performance accompanied by an orchestra sound very bright and cheerful. Especially because there has been found the possibility for not only for classical compositions, but also for creative search. To make a long story short – it is good.

NAOFI. Melodies Of Ukraine. Ninth CD.


The ninth disc 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.

Oles' Zhuravchak. Spivucha sopilka 3: Sny Karpat. (Singing sopilka 3: Dreams of the Carpathians)


He is still able to fire up and refresh with light silver brooks of flying notes – and to thrill with unhurried lyricism of melodies. The modern and traditional interlace in his performance absolutely naturally, melodies of other peoples grow into Ukrainian basis simply and naturally – one even does not notice all of that at once. And – it is done in a talented way.

Vognesmih. Kraine U. (Country U).


Various synthesis is, actually, a characteristic sign of music by Vognesmih – as it has two powerful grounds. One is rock sounding, strong, deep, modern. The second is the ethnic component, which is based on the pleasantly extensive palette of authentic instruments.

Ukrainian Barvy. Etno MIX. /digi-pack/


We have already repeatedly met Ukrainian Barvy – and the group has never disappointed us. It feels identically easy in absolutely different styles, it performs very varied music – spiritual, ceremonial, classic, modern, folk, variety art.

Слухаючи Мирона Блощищака, Божену Корчинську та Андрія Яцківа, у виконанні Лесика НІЧОГО яскравого не бачу... сірість.

Олесь Журавчак мой двоюродный или троюродный брат по папиной линии. Меня зовут Елена Журавчак. Я живу в Тюмени. Как то Олесь приезжал в Тюмень с концертами и заходил к нам. Моей маме и моему брату очень понравилось его творчество. Я бы хотела наладить с ним переписку и общаться.

This is an excellent disc of Ukrainian music from different areas of Ukraine. the clear trill of the sopilka makes a beautiful sound, pleasant to which to listen.
