Mykola Tomenko. Bili ptytsi snihiv. (White birds of snows)

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?

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.
