This CD of Lyudkevych's music has just been released. 

Ukrainian Live, Vol.1

The recordings are old, but possibly never previously released.  They are:

- Sinfonietta (Rec. 1962)
- Subcarpathian Symphony (Rec. 1982)
- Symphony A Minor (Rec. 1968)

Lviv Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, Demian Pelekhatyi

I asked the seller what will be on "Vol.2", given that this is called Vol.1, but he doesn't know!

I also bought my copy a while ago you might remember that we already briefly mentioned (and discussed) this CD in April:,7038.0.html

As for the music itself, I am happy to have these rarities (which had not been released before indeed), even if I would not call them a major find. It's music which is still very much rooted in 19th century and follows its idols pretty closely (without reaching them), even in the late A Minor symphony which strongly echoes Tchaikovsky's Symphonies Nos. 4&6, while the scherzo partly recalls Mussorgsky's Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks in Ravel's orchestration (look at the way Lyudkevych passes over to the trio).
