The music of Ukraine has inspired countless artists and composers from myriad cultures. Through epic, thought-provoking works by Dvořák, Prokofiev, and a new commission (20x2020 No.13) by Ukrainian composer-conductor VIRKO BALEY, we explore Slavic and Eastern European musical heritage.
Dr. Baley’s new piano quintet is a suite of dances and songs without words based on Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar folk themes. Lauded Ukrainian-American pianist PAVEL GINTOV and violinist OLEG SULYGA join as guest artists, and University of Houston musicologist HOWARD POLLACK presents a pre-concert talk.
