Title: Ukrainian Classical Music - your help needed
Post by: guest224 on January 21, 2022, 03:24:16 pm
I am giving a shout-out to this website - https://ukrainianlive.org (https://ukrainianlive.org)

U-Live is a project aimed at recording for the first time the music of Ukrainian composers across the ages, as well as unearthing older recordings which have remained locked-up and out of reach.

Contrary to what many outside the country would have people believe, Ukraine has always had its own composers writing music across the full range of the classical spectrum, not just folksy operas of limited appeal. Their late romantic music, for example, easily holds its own against Russian/German/Polish etc composers of the same period and would be a revelation to the musical world. And yet they remain unknown.  Itís telling that a large number of them were repressed (ie murdered or imprisoned, and their scores burned) by the NKVD in the 1930s.

I understand that U-Live is driven by Collegium Musicum Lviv under the conductor Ivan Ostapovych and the poet Taras Demko (http://collegiummusicum.com.ua/ (http://collegiummusicum.com.ua/))

If you go to https://ukrainianlive.org/composers (https://ukrainianlive.org/composers) you will see the composers they have worked on , the recordings they have which you can listen to if you download the app.

But - they need financial support, and have a fundraising page where you can make one-off or regular donations. If 1,000 people gave $5 a month...etc.  Please do consider it!  https://www.patreon.com/UkrainianLiveClassic (https://www.patreon.com/UkrainianLiveClassic)
