Valentyn Sylvestrov, Borys Demenko. Metaphoric Music. /digi-pack/.
You know, someone correctly said: everyone has his/her own Silvestrov. I was introduced to his music due to the album "Meditation", but he really began for me with "Sacred Works" performed by the choir "Kyiv" – and this is, probably, symptomatic. Music of the tenderest spiritual motions, the deepest experiences beyond words, most intimate insights into the beauty of the visible and invisible – well, how else could one speak about it? I just do not know any other contemporary composer who could so easily, intelligently, naturally invite/encourage to contemplate the harmony of the unspeakable – who could so clearly express this in the sound, despite its a priori obscurity for the intellect. Although, I believe, this music is not so much for the intellect, but rather for more subtle and warm instruments... However, everyone gets what he/she should get, and others will hear something different. That's right – perception should not be unambiguous. As well as with any revelation, only one thing can be stated for certain here: the revelation did happen. Everything else is interpretation. But, on the other hand, the art of recognition is not limited to intuition – it is impossible without a thoughtful attitude, without the intellectual component. And here I would like to express separate compliments to Borys Demenko – in his performance, in my opinion, one can hear a harmonious proportionality of the first and second elements, due to which recognition, interpretation turn, in fact, into art.

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.

Kyiv Camerata. Ihor Scherbakov. Chamber Symphonies.

While each of these works has its own image and audio world, they are all ideologically and thematically similar, they have generic features of romantic lyrical and dramatic poetic confession. Search for inner peace, harmony is the key theme, which is modeled differently in each of the piece...

Yevhen Stankovych, State chamber ensemble "Kyiv Soloists". 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.

National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. Nataliya Rozhko.

Natalia Rozhko has her own expressive ways wandering along which is real pleasure for the audience. She composes deep, not flat pictures with a lot of fine and tiny details – but at that she leaves a surprisingly large space for imagination, offers a few keys for understanding and interpretation at once.

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...
