Description: Lyatoshinsky’s expansively conceived, 40-minute Ukrainian Quintet from 1942 finds him at his most emotionally overt, with a heartfelt Lento e tranquillo second movement. Dedicated to Lyatoshynsky, Silvestrov’s Quintet dates from 1961 at the start of his Modernist odyssey of the 1960s, while Poleva’s withdrawn and secretive Simurgh-quintet (2000, rev. 2020) is part of that style embracing spiritual themes and musical simplicity defined as ‘sacred minimalism’. Bogdana Pivnenko, Taras Yaropud (violins), Kateryna Suprun (viola), Yurii Pogoretskyi (cello), Iryna Starodub (piano).
