From Ukraine With Love

This recording combines the talents of three remarkable musicians who normally do not perform with each other: Lidia Mikhailenko, soloist of the Kiev Music Hall Theatre; Mar’yan Shunevich, soloist of the Lviv Philharmonic and lead singer with the Lviv Vatra Ensemble; and Ihor Kushpler, soloist with the Ivan Franko Opera in Lviv. In 1986, they were invited to prepare a program for performances at the Lviv Pavillion, Winnipeg, during the popular Folk Festival FOLKLORAMA. Because of their popularity, they were invited to return in 1987 and it was then that they cut this album. It is a tribute to their impeccable musicianship and sensitivity that they perform a variety of styles ranging from popular songs, romantic ballads, humorous folk songs to Ukrainian “bahatoholosia” with equal success.

Typical of their repertoire is “Svitlytsia”, words by Bohdan Stelmakh and music by Ihor Bilozir, that was so enthusiastically received by Winnipeg audiences. The song eloquently describes the love for one’s family, home and motherland. The group has a marvellous sense of ensemble and is truly sensitive in their treatment of lyrics and melody. The Ukrainian House of Gifts is proud to present this unique recording.
