Ihor Borko. Z holosu zemli mojeji. (From the Voice of My Land)
To all appearances, today you have the chance to listen to one of the best tenors of the modern Ukrainian opera. May be, there is no need for me to present the list of all of his prizes at different international contests, as the booklet to this disc contains a detailed information on that. I would like to mention only one fact - Ihor Borko was the last student, the last graduate of Kostyantyn Ohnevyi, and at that, a brilliant student. At the same time, he is so talented that even before entering the Conservatoire, he already presented Ukraine with great dignity to the audience abroad. But all that is nothing. The thing, which is really important, and you will really hear it, is his voice. Sincere, Tender, flexible, tender, really lyrical – you can’t but notice it, and of course, you can’t turn a deaf ear to it. Besides, this person seems to have a difficult fate, because his singing sounds with such deep, gentle and at the same time rich nuances. You feel at once – a person that has no rich inner emotional experience of his own, as well as experience of disappointment and blooming, will not be able to sing like that. Here no imagination will help. This singing comes through the heart and from the hart. And to your heart. So, it is not accidental that at this disc not opera arias, but simple Ukrainian songs are recorded, because when they are performed the way they are performed at this recording, these are not simply songs. Check by yourselves.

No doubts, this is the best Ukrainian singer ever and one of the best in the world. I would say, his voice is ideal and multicolored wich comes out from Ihor`s soul and goes to people` hearts.In addition, I can`t even admit wich song is the best in his perfomance, they are all perfomed perfectly due to unbeliveble beauty of Ihor Borko`s voice.

Greate job!

Його голос наче спів соловейка. А пісня "нічко цікавая" в його виконанні просто шедевр.

This is one of the best CD's i have heard in a long time. Ihor's tenor reaches those top notes most of us mere mortals would find difficult to even dream of! This is highly recommended, on a par with Solovyanenko.
