It has somehow turned out to be that since childhood I have liked the song "The Moonlit Night" very much. That’s why I prefer it to be performed in the best possible way. In this particular case Dmytro Hnatyuk performs it really in the best way. Personally I like it very much. Still one may say the same about this album in general – I like the songs recorded at it, as well as the way they sound, though generally I listen to somewhat different music. May be the music itself, that is, the choice of musical instruments, is not the main thing here. I think, the main thing here is the voice of Dmytro Hnatyuk. There is something in it, some transparent depth, which does not leave you indifferent, so that you feel that the song is performed not formally, as it happens sometimes, but it comes from inside. That’s the reason why it sounds somehow intimately – as if this person himself once composed this song and still remembers why and how it happened. Though, if you take comic songs, here it is quite the other way round. They are sliding somewhere by themselves. This is the impression I’ve got from this disc. At least, for tonight. May be, it is because of the evening, which is quiet and transparent tonight.
