The name of Mykola Tomenko must be known well to all those who appreciate Ukrainian variety art. At least – the variety art that is, so to speak, classic. For songs based on lyrics by Mykola Tomenko have been appearing in repertoire of our singers for almost half-a-century already – he has a really long creative way behind his back, a dozen and a half of books of poetry, a set of literary awards. However, in this case another thing is important: songs with his lyrics were not just created – they were beautiful and grew popular indeed. Of course, that is to a great extent due to the composers. In the end, such names as Bilash, Shamo – do speak about something. And we should not forget about performance either – for these songs sounded performed by such masters as R. Kyrychenko, the Honored Chapel of Bandura-Players, A. Mokrenko, V. Bilonozhko. Should I say that these people with their performance did manage to glorify quite a lot of beautiful songs? Thus, in store for you – a date with beautiful poetry, beautiful music, beautiful performance. And what else should a song be?
