Igor Shamo. Songs.

Reviews (4)
Igor Shamo. Songs.
You could hardly find a grown-up person on our post-Soviet territory who would not have known these songs and this name – Ihor Shamo. It is not surprising, as he composed not only music to songs, but also music to 56 films, symphonies, operas, instrumental compositions of all genres. This composer is so talented that he was admitted a members of the Union of Composers when he was a student of the third year at Kyiv Conservatoire. He is such a talented composer that – you might hear by yourselves – even after fifty years his songs are taken as something fresh, clear, inspired and simply beautiful. Doesn’t all that speak about his talent? Time is a scrupulous listener, you know, and straight-out as well. But the creative activity of Ihor Shamo seems to have passed such exam very well. That’s why I am glad twice in connection with this disc. First, I am glad for those who know and like these songs. Then, I am glad for those who do not know and will only discover them for themselves. And here there is much to discover.

Taras Zhytynsky. Jikhaly batjary. Halychyna Chanson. (Batiars Were Riding)

There is no prison lyricism. While hooligan lyricism – can be found, for a batiar is never expected to be a law-abiding citizen, right? Though, Taras Zhytynsky was not afraid to crack a joke – therefore, he attributed to his songs the sounding very similar to the abovementioned Russian chanson. But let these jokes not distract your eyes – just listen to the texts, and everything will become clear.

Olexandr Smyk. Vsenoshna dlja dushi. Songs Vernissage. (Vespers for the Soul)

This is, actually, a collection of songs composed by Oleksander Smyk, which not only the author sings – one can hear here a dozen of various performers more. Including such well-known ones as Iryna Shynkaruk and Taras Zhytynsky. Thus, the disc has nothing to do with bardic songs – this is rather variety music.
