Dreams: A Revival of Ukrainian Music

Regular price $18.00

Item #

Dreams is a unique recording that brings to life the forgotten violin/piano

works by 19th- and 20th century composers from Ukraine, three of them

repressed by the Soviet regime. The disc is titled after the opening piece

by Viktor Kosenko, which sets the tone for a program infused with mystery,

lyricism, and colourful contrasts. The little known violin works of Kharkiv-

born Serhiy Bortkevych reflect the turbulent drama of his times (Sonata) as

well as a playful musical charm and elegance (Suite). Three noteworthy

folk song arrangements by Vasyl Barvinsky mark world premieres and

represent the composer’s signature style in this genre. The recording

culminates with a short, uplifting piece by Mykola Roslavets, “Morning

Mood.” A wonderful addition to the collection of classical music students

and fans of rare music discoveries.
