Yesterday noon, my bus and I could not make it to the National Gallery of Art in time for this short retrospective by Thomas Hrynkiw of largely 20th century Ukrainian classical piano music due to inequality protest marches weaving in and out of central downtown Washington, D.C. I hope the program will be broadcast at a later date.
Here was the program and program notes:
Iosyf Vytytsk’kyi (1813 – 1866)
Lev Revuts’kyi (1889 – 1977)
Sonata in B Minor
Mykola Lysenko (1842 – 1912)
Viktor Kosenko (1896 – 1938)
Vasyl’ Barvins’kyi (1888 – 1963)
Prelude in E Minor
Prelude in F-sharp Major
Stanislav Liudkevich (1879 – 1979)
Paraphrase on the Ukrainian Folksong “What Raven Caws over the Sea”
Program Note to the upcoming free Sunday evening performance at the National Gallery of Art by the Rose Ensemble, from Minnesota, singing Arab, Sephardic, and Christian music from the Middle Ages and preceded by a lecture on Sephardic music by Jerome Barry.
