MYROSLAV SKORYK (b.1938): Violin Concertos, Vol. 1 - Violin Concertos Nos. 1-4.
Catalogue Number: 03V058
Description: Skoryk’s cycle of nine violin concertos cover a 45-year span. They draw on elements of Carpathian folklore and are saturated in expressive dialogues, lyricism and elegy while also exuding powerful intensity. Skoryk’s sensual writing is frequently contrasted with syncopated motifs, cadenzas, fugal episodes and march rhythms. The four here span the period 1969 to 2003 and are all single-movement works ranging from 13 to 16 minutes. Andrej Bielow (violin), National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine; Volodymyr Sirenko.
