Title: Ukrainian Piano Quintets
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
Genre: Classical Artists
Boris Lyatoshynsky was a leading member of a new generation of Ukrainian composers that emerged in the 1920s. His expansively conceived Ukrainian Quintet finds him at his most emotionally overt, with a heartfelt Lento e tranquillo second movement. Dedicated to Lyatoshynsky, Valentin Silvestrov's Piano Quintet dates from the start of his Modernist odyssey of the 1960s, while Victoria Poleva's withdrawn and secretive Simurgh-quintet is part of a style that embraces spiritual themes and musical simplicity defined as 'sacred minimalism'.
