Nina Matvienko. Najkrashche. Golden Collection. (The Best Of...)

May be, it was not so easy to create this collection of the best recordings of Nina Matviyenko’s songs, as too many of such recordings have been collected. If you paid attention, you might notice that that the whole retrospective review of the songs, performed by her from 1970 till 1999, is presented here. We may only thank the archival depository of the Ukrainian radio for keeping these recordings in a good state. So, there are many recordings, while the capacity of the disc is limited. Due to this it was not so easy at all. Still, on the other hand, all that had to be a very easy work, and the reason for it is very simple – this is Nina Matviyenko. Frankly speaking, it is difficult to imagine a song, performed by her, to be not beautiful. It seems that she is able to perform even an unremarkable song in such a way that you listen to it and your heart melts. Sometimes it seems that through her voice our country and our land express, tell and insonify themselves. They rise themselves, and rise us, who live in this world, with them. This woman sang that way long time ago, she sings this way now. As for us, we are listening. And heed. And rise.

...with her voice, her soul not only the song is revived, but also the hearts of those who's listening. Wherever they would live, whichever language they would speak – Nina Matvienko in some magical way manages to release the light of this world, to make it close and clear, warm.

Nina Matvienko. Molytva. (Prayer)

It seems to me that Nina Matvienko long ago became a guide to something so subtle, light, sincere, that there are no words in human language for this. The beauty that she carries already cannot be called only Ukrainian – it goes beyond national and geographical borders, it has universal importance.

Nina Matvienko. Kolyskova zori. (Lullaby to a evening-glow)

You will hear songs that actually have not been released earlier. Nina Matvienko... Such force and clearness are there in her voice that even songs familiar for a long time sound so fresh, as if for the first time. To say nothing of less known songs – their sounding at once bewitches, grasps all of your attention entirely. And such attention is generously rewarded.
