Borys Demenko. Ukrainian Piano Avant-garde. Bulgarian Piano Metro-Rhythmics. (2CD).
Boris Demenko's mastery does not need superfluous promotion. Even if you have not heard his performances, you could earlier already hear the record of pieces by Borys Ljatoshinsky performed by him. But today's release is even more complex and interesting than the previous one. At least, here you will hear works by several at once – namely, thirteen – Ukrainian composers-innovators (among them, by the way, there are also Ljatoshinsky’s students). And, in addition – a Bulgarian one. Here, there are pieces both by such well-known masters as Y.Stankovych and V.Silvestrov – and pieces by authors who are not that familiar to the wide public. However, as the talent and fame have never been immediately connected with each other, we also won’t pretend that such direct dependence exists. We’d better pay attention to that practically all works represented here are extreme rarities. Their manuscripts and recordings have been preserved only in Boris Demenko's personal collection – except for B.Buevsky's and V.Klin’s recordings. In due time, it was forbidden even not to just perform this music – but it was dangerous to mention it publicly. And it is Boris Demenko who became the first performer and interpreter of all these pieces – and the majority of them are extremely complex for performance. However, certainly, the articles in the disk polygraph can tell you better about it. And best of all it can be expressed by the music – unusual, unknown, ambiguous.

Kyiv Camerata. Alexander Levkovich. Chamber Works.

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.

State chamber ensemble "Kyiv Soloists", Yevhen Stankovych. Live in Kyiv. /digi-pack/ of important features of all his music lies herein – it is practically impossible to perceive it in a contemplative, alienated way. Because it carries not only the atmosphere, feeling, space – but also a certain thought, question, message. Sometimes simple and clear, but often – encoded, hidden in complicated constructions and strong (as they seem from outside) emotions.

Kyiv Chamber Choir. Romuald Twardowski. "Kyivska" Liturgy.

Romuald Twardowski composes in 2006 "Kyivska" Liturgy – and dedicates it exactly to the chamber choir "Kyiv". Such honor and attention could not remain without an answer – consequently, as it could be expected, the choir became the performer of the Liturgy... This is, sure, a good record – transparently soft and strong at the same time.

Svyatoslav Lunyov. Para Pacem – Para Bellum.

This music is as though a child who was unfairly offended by strangers, and it can start crying from despair, or it can initiate a fight. However, it can also start laughing – and, in the end, that is to what all that leads, and results in. In any case, the green sprout chops up concrete...

Valentyn Sylvestrov, Kyiv Camerata. Meditation (symphony for violoncello and chamber orchestra).

His "Meditation" is a symphony for a violoncello and a chamber orchestra. Meditation in a general sense is a state, a process and quality at the same time. Since a symphony is called to reproduce and to recreate the first, the second and the third, it is hopeless to reproduce the content. This music...

Igor Mamoushev. Prydumay sobi Islandiyu. /digi-pack/. (Fancy Your Iceland)

It all started with a couple of pieces for the play "Marriage of Figaro" – and the audience liked the new approach so much that they started asking Igor for continuation.
