Skorulskyi, Mykhaylo Adamovych (1887-1950)

Adagio of Mavka and Lukash, from the ballet Song of the Forest

Orchestra of Donetsk National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet named after A.B. Solovyanenko
(violin solo and conductor unknown)

I've posted up fragments from this ballet before (above).  This particular recording of its "climax" piece is "ripped" from a complete live performance by the Donetsk ballet which is posted up on youtube ().

The Adagio is about 7 minutes long and is for violin and orchestra.  To me this version is a true encore piece, and hits the spot more than any of the several other versions out there, including the one released commercially with Abram Shtern on the violin and the Kyiv Opera Theatre Orchestra under Borys Chystyakov. I am embarrassed to say I have often had it on repeat for up to an hour at a time! I hope you like it as much as I do.
