Notes & Reviews:

The Drohobych Chamber Orchestra was originally attached to the College of music in Drohobych, Ukraine. It was founded in 1978 by a graduate from the L'viv Conservatoire, Myroslav Putsentela. For many years students and teachers worked together in an almost laboratory like atmosphere, exploring the orchestral repertoire. Ultimately there was a natural formation of all the best musicians, who gravitated to form the orchestra which soon became very popular and began to give many concerts in the towns and cities of Ukraine. Its reputation soon spread beyond the Ukrainian boarders into Poland, Germany and England. In the National Music Colleges Competitions of Ukraine the orchestra had for the three times successfully won the Laureate prize, while performing 12 different concert programs. In 1993 the Orchestra became known as "National Orchestra of Ukraine". The inherent flexibility of these musicians enabled their conductor, Myroslav Putsentela to combine the classical repertoire with more traditional Ukrainian folk music and songs. Ukrainian folk music has very soft, exiting and thrilling melodies, whose charms can captivate anyone who hears them. Their melodies transform us back to ancient times when the genius of their composers, instrument makers and musicians produced some immortal melodies. They were performed at ceremonies, feasts and rites. Within the Orchestra are some specialist folk musicians who performed the fantasias, folk melodies and polkas.
