Notes & Reviews:

Myroslav Skoryk holds the title of People's Artist of Ukraine and is one of his country's outstanding composers. Both the Cello Concerto and the Seventh Violin Concerto combine bittersweet lyricism with explosive dynamic contrasts. With its swinging rhythms and folk music pungency the Carpathian Concerto is one of Skoryk's most engaging and popular works. The pensive Melody for strings propelled him to the forefront of Ukrainian music, while the slapstick in his transcription of Paganini's Caprice No. 19 reveals the composer's humorous side. These live recordings were made at Myroslav Skoryk's 75th anniversary concerts in Odessa.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The Diptych for string orchestra, from 1993, is a satisfying piece with some mysterious descending chromatic lines. The emotions are honest and not overdone. Skoryk arranged and expanded all 24 of Paganini's famed Caprices for orchestra; and the 19th is here, sounding like a circus march with drums, cymbals, and trombone glissandos, interrupted by quiet bits of sunrise. Now, this I'd like to hear more of. Can we get the whole set, Naxos? Violin Concerto 7 (2009) is a 15-minute, single-movement work, similar in tone to the Diptych - melancholy, then hyperactive, even fiery. As a whole, the piece is respectable, and Pilatyuk is an accomplished violinist and plays the virtuoso part with aplomb. Carpathian Concerto, for orchestra (1972), is more populist. It sputters and pontificates instead of flowing. This album hasn't been a waste of time. The orchestra and sound are fine; notes are in English.
