A journey into the world of selected Ukrainian piano music of the past one hundred years. Characterized by sentimentalism, intimate lyricism, poetic charm and wit, the featured pieces evoke a diverse range of moods.
Poetic Moods offers a unique glimpse into the world of Ukrainian composers of the past one hundred years, much of their music unknown thus far. Characterized by introspective lyricism, the featured works evoke a diverse range of moods and colours. Although each composer reflects an individual style, a sense of musical poetry can be perceived in common among them. The CD is titled after Yuri Ishchenko’s cycle Poetic Moods, Book I, which, along with his Four Waltzes and Just a Touch of Chopin, marks a world premiere on this recording.
