Roman Repka, Myroslav Skoryk. The Melody. Piano music.

Reviews (6)
Roman Repka, Myroslav Skoryk. The Melody. Piano music.

Why is this disc devoted exclusively to piano music? Undoubtedly because Myroslav Skoryk is the author of not only this music. For example, he composed music to the film "Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors" directed by Serhiy Paradganov – and till recently many people knew about Ukraine only thanks to this film. It was exactly he, Myroslav Skoryk, who was the author of the opera "Moses" composed to the order of Vatican and staged on the occasion of the visit of Pope John Paul II to Ukraine. In other words, Skoryk is both a famous person and multifarious author. In particular, his piano music is included into concert repertoire of many performers – Ukrainian, as well as foreign ones. Having heard at least one or two melodies, you will at once understand why. Along with other features, this music is characterized by vanguard search and national colouring. And the main thing is that it contains a transparent easiness of that quality, which is so peculiar to he combination of a real talent and real ability of work. To crown it all, I will add that masterly performance of Roman Repka deserves individual gratitude and recognition.

Valentyn Sylvestrov. New bagatelles. Performed by author. (3CD). /digi-pack/.

Valentyn Sylvestrov: "...I would even go as far as to call them "symphonies for piano", in the most direct sense of the word "symphony" – consonance. These works are a "symphony of moments" and a "melodies of silence", made up of not only sounds, but also pauses, which are music as well. Perhaps in these works one of the function of music shall manifest itself – to be a consolation..."

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...

Kyiv Camerata. Oleh Kiva. Chamber Works. (2CD).

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.

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. Actually, he did continue – that is how an entire program of not piano music, as it was before, but synthesizer one by Igor Mamushev appeared...

Borys Demenko, Borys Lyatoshynsky. Tvory dlja fortepiano. (Piano works)

It is a frankly incredible music, that’s why it will be a bit difficult for a person, who has been brought up at pop-music, to listen to it. It is worth while listening to this music for the sake of a great space which is opened in it, behind it and in it.
