Skoryk scores

August 15, 2014

Myroslav Skoryk holds the title of People’s Artist of Ukraine and is one of his country’s outstanding composers. Anyone encountering his music for the first time becomes instantly hooked. Raymond Bisha introduces the release of a new disc that presents a varied and highly colourful programme of Skoryk’s works, reaffirming his status both as a national artist and an internationally acclaimed musical voice for his country.


SKORYK Carpathian Concerto, Diptych, Violin Concerto No 7, Cello Concerto
Pilatyuk • Kazakov • Odessa Philharmonic • Earle
8.573333

Both the Cello Concerto and the Seventh Violin Concerto combine bittersweet lyricism with explosive dynamic contrasts. With its swinging rhythms and folk-music pungency the Carpathian Concerto is one of Skoryk’s most engaging and popular works. The pensive Melody for strings propelled him to the forefront of Ukrainian music, while the slapstick in his transcription of Paganini’s Caprice No. 19 reveals the composer’s humorous side. These live recordings were made at Myroslav Skoryk’s 75th anniversary concerts in Odessa.
