Lysenko Recording in Production
The new recording by The Ukrainian Art Song Project is currently in production. The current efforts are focused on Mykola Lysenko, the father of Ukrainian classical music.
The documentation of Lysenko’s art songs is a major endeavour - 124 songs, almost 4 times the size of the Stetsenko recording, almost 6 hours music. For this reason, Musica Leopolis under The
Ukrainian Art Song Project has invited 14 of Canada's foremost musicians to join the project. Combined with the spearheading efforts of British bass-baritone Pavlo Hunka, we are pleased to welcome back our
previous collaborators Albert Krywolt, Russell Braun, Benjamin Butterfield and Roman Borys. In addition, Isabel Bayrakdarian, Allyson McHardy, Monica Whicher, Krisztina Szabó, Michael Colvin, Doug Stewart (flute),
Serouj Kradjian (piano), Mia Bach (piano), Elizabeth Turnbull and Robert Gleadow will also be applying their talents to the beauty of Lysenko’s music.
Listen now to a preview of 8 tracks of Mykola Lysenko’s work being compiled for the production.
The Ukrainian Art Song Project is currently producing the Art Songs of Mykola Lysenko recorded at the CBC's Glenn Gould Studio under the recording label Musica Leopolis. The Lysenko recording has now been completed and the launch of the six-CD set is expected to take place in 2010.
