IN MEMORY OF VOLODYMYR IVASIUK (1949-1979)
Volodymyr Ivasiuk was born on april 4, 1949, in Kitsman, Bukovyna, the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. On graduating from the Czerniwtsi medical institute, Volodymyr began his short career as a doctor. He also developed a flair for composing and wrote his first song «Chervona ruta» in 1971. He subsequently entered the Lysenko conservatorium in Lviv. Because his songs had a common theme, love, they became popular in Ukraine and this record features four of his best loved compositions. However, as Volodymyr would not work for the oppressors of his homeland, the soviet regime, he met a brutal and untimely death in april, 1979. News of his death brought an immense revival of his compositions in Ukraine and in Ukrainian communities throughout the free world. Volodymyr lives on in the words of his beautiful songs.
The Volodymyr Ivasiuk folk ensemble was founded in april, 1984, by young australian-ukrainians, under the musical direction of Peter Deriashnyj. The formation of the ensemble marks the fifth anniversary of ivasiuk’s untimely death.
Although we grew up and were educated far from the homeland of our fathers, we aim to preserve our cultural heritage and pass its richness onto our fellow australians.
The ensemble currently consists of 51 members, comprising singers, bandurists, and pianists. The songs on this record vividly depict the musicality of the ukrainian people, the scenic beauty of the land and its ancient and turbulent history. We hope that through these songs you too, will share our love for Ukraine.
