Myroslav Volynsky / Galicians II

Myroslav Volynsky (1955 -)

A student of composition at Lviv Conservatoire under Anatol’ Kos-Anatol’sky, (a composer of note whose art songs are to be recorded by the Ukrainian Art Song Project), Myroslav has to date composed for all musical genres – operatic, symphonic, oratorio and chamber music.  His art songs range from intimate miniatures to grandiose expressions of epic dimensions - a true challenge for piano and voice. Myroslav’s immediate influences range from Richard Wagner, Gustav Mahler to Borys Lyatoshynsky, Richard Strauss and Dmitri Shostakovich.  A delight for the performer to perform; a delight for the listener to witness such sophisticated and groundbreaking music...listen out for the lapses into ‘Tango’!!!
