Modest Mencyns'kyj, Solomiya Krushelnytska, Myhajlo Holyns'kyj, Oleksandr Myshuha. Golden voices of Ukraine.
This disc is devoted to the 150th anniversary of Oleksandr Myshuha’s birthday. Though there are only two recordings of his singing presented at this disc, it is worth while paying attention to them – that is, it is worth while listening to them, because from the first second this voice fascinates you with its tenderness and some kind of intimacy. It even seems that it is closer to you than your own skin. Besides, you may find some facts from the biography of this singer in the booklet – it is also very interesting. For me it is to be regretted that technical possibilities of the 1900’s did not allow to preserve more recordings of his singing. As a matter of fact, “we have what we have”. Still, because of that this particular disc does not lose anything, because in addition to Oleksandr Myshuha, you may hear the recordings of three more performers. Mykhailo Holynskyi, Solomiya Krushelnytska, Modest Mentsynskyi. All four of them are celebrated. They are the flower of both Ukrainian and world opera, a bright pleiad, which began to shine confidently at the break of the centuries – the 19th and the 20th. So, I think, there is practically no chances not to be satisfied with this disc. I wish you to get satisfaction.

Модест Менціньскій рідний брат моєй прабабці. В родині багато про него згадуют. В музею Крушельницкой є компакт з більшою к-тю його записів. Крушельницька, Менціньскій і Мишуга - то круто, а Голиньскій співає точно так, нби сі дре старе простирало. то так про него сучасникі згадували і так воно і є. Але загалом пізнавально. Дякую видавцям!

Безсумнівно радує той факт, що ці чудові голоси не були загублені у минулому, і цей диск є ще одним з багатьох свідчень величності українського народу. Тільки трохи шкода, що декільки записів все ж таки не дуже гарної якості.

Трохи дивно слухати записи сторiчної давнини... Ще попереду свiтовi вiйни та божевiльне ХХ столiття. Та коли чуєш цi голоси розумiєш, що ланцюжок часу знову цiлий - за XIX йде ХХI вiк.

Диск ретро - рідкісні й малодоступні записи корифеїв світової опери С.Крушельницької, М.Менцинського, О.Мишуги, майже невідомого М.Голинського, - чудово реставровані записи, справді видатні голоси.

Цікавий диск, стоїть на одній полиці з повним зібранням Вертинського на CD. Дуже доречна річ, коли треба створити або зануритися атмосферу кінця ХІХ - початку ХХ сторіччя.
