Here is a link to a project to support the terrible humanitarian situation that Ukrainians find themselves in. Itfeatures recordings of many unsung Ukrainian composers:

and


esto Music, in collaboration with the classical record labels BIS, Chandos, Delphian, Naxos and Toccata, has launched an initiative to raise much-needed funds for the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Ukraine.
A curated selection of 12 recordings by key Ukrainian composers from the 18th to the 21st centuries is offered on CD/SACD and download: click here (https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/articles/4585--announcement-humanitarian-fundraiser-for-ukraine) to browse through the selection of recordings by Ukrainian composers.

The labels are providing the discs free of charge, and also covering the royalties and copyrights, whilst Presto is handling the sales, logistics and shipping. This means that 100% of the sales revenues will go directly to humanitarian relief in Ukraine.
Chris O’Reilly, Chief Executive of Presto Music, says “The dual opportunity to explore this largely neglected repertoire whilst raising much-needed money for this cause is one which we’re sure classical music fans worldwide will embrace“.
Ralph Couzens, Managing Director of Chandos Records, adds “The chance for the classical recording industry to come together like this is our small way of doing what we can to raise funds for our friends in Ukraine“.
The humanitarian fundraising campaign for Ukraine of Presto Music has raised so far more than £8,000 in total: all funds will be donated to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal via the Red Cross – https://donate.redcross.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-crisis-appeal
