"Sad" group. Dole, de ty?! (Destiny, Where Are You?)

Within the last 20 years, I think, the slogan of this group remained the same: "Heavy metal into every house!". Strange though it may seem, but it is felt even when listening to this acoustical disc. Taking into consideration the fact that all lyrics of this album are Taras Shevchenkos poetry, it should be at least interesting to listen to it. Moreover, such people as I am like such things very mush. Acoustics is in general a separate stratum in rock-music. Only at first glance it seems that it is easier to play in acoustics than to play just with freaks. In actual fact, acoustics requires great quality and purity of performance and sounding, more delicate approach to sounding otherwise, it would be simply frightful or boring to listen to it. "Sad" ("The Garden") undoubtedly managed to achieve that. Twenty years of underground did not pass in vain, experience and desire did what they had to do. Beautifully. The songs to Taras Shevchenkos poems are performed very often, to put it mildly, and the styles of performance are different. Thats why it is twice pleasant that there are people who are able to perform it in such a way that the feeling of freshness and lightness might appear. The glance at music at another visual angle naturally excites another glance at the lyrics of songs as well. Taking into consideration the fact that Taras Shevchenko was turned into a golden idol long ago, such possibility of another glance is quite appropriate.

MuzBat. Neskoreny ProRock. Taras Shevchenko. /songbook+CD/. (Unsubdued ProRock. Taras Shevchenko)

(this edition is an exclusive thing, and you cannot buy it. But you can get it as a present). Shevchenko will surprise you: rock fits his poems wonderfully, it is also his element. Moreover, the rock music element fits naturally to Shevchenko's words: they are just as stubborn and rebellious..

Telnyuk Sisters, National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. Nash Shevchenko. /DVD/. (Our Shevchenko)

The concert film "Our Shevchenko" is not a kind of a formal tribute. It looks like the thunderous silence of an inner challenge in the search for truth. The severe, exacting truth, often inconvenient, incompatible with the comfortable habit of ignoring what destroys the calm, makes one realize one's own limits and, perhaps, go beyond them.

Borys Hmyrya. Velykomu Kobzarevi. /premium, digi-pack/. (To the Great Kobzar)

The disk "To the Great Kobzar" is small in size but a valuable present for all the fans on the occasion of Taras Shevchenko's 200th anniversary. This is a special and wonderful recording. Special because especially for this release archive records were restored, and it was done as diligently and well as it is currently possible...

Komu Vnyz. 4: Shevchenko. (EP). /digi-pack/.

..There is space both for an atmospheric ballad, and for the proprietary hard "art-bombardment", and a recitative prophecy/spell that makes you freeze in other words, listen. A worthy succinct statement.
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Borys Hmyrya. Great Kobzar in My Heart. (premium edition). /digi-pack/.

Basically, this CD is a second release of "For the Great Kobzar", copies of which have long been sold out but. The first and, perhaps, the most valuable difference is that the new publication is a collection of restored records.

Olexander Bystrushkin, Mykhaylo Chemberzhi. Monoloh samoty. Poetic and Musical Composition Based on "Kobzar" by T. Shevchenko. /digi-pack/ (Monologue of Loneliness)

Word. Living, hot, real and surprisingly up-to-date. This looks, honestly speaking, as a little miracle for it is not a secret that official solemnity surrounding the figure of Shevchenko has almost managed to transform him in perception of an ordinary person into a "stone block", a petrified symbol. And "Monologue of Loneliness" again returns truly live, direct perception.
