Arthur Greene and Solomia Soroka at The Wax

JSO’s Up-Close presents an evening with Arthur Greene and Solomia Soroka Performing Music by Yevhen Stankovych
The new CD by Arthur Greene and Solomia Soroka, on London Toccata Classics, is being released in March. It is a CD of the violin/piano music by Yevhen Stankovych, one of the best, if not the best modern living composer of Ukraine, who is also recognized widely in the West. Stankovych is coming to the US to participate in series of concerts-CD presentations with us in the first half of March. We have concerts scheduled in Chicago, Ann Arbor, Detroit, Washington, DC, and NY.
Stankovych’s music is very evocative, expressive, and melodic, and in some moments even sentimental, which makes it pleasant to listen to. The program will present the life work of the composer, starting with his early compositions such as Триптих на Верховині, to his latest composition Фреска Майдану, dedicated to the recent events in Ukraine. Stankovych will talk about his compositions, giving the audience an important and interesting insight into his music.
