Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, January 2015
Stankovich (b.1942) follows in the footsteps of Schnittke with bold symphonic canvases that contrast music of garish violence with moments of lyrical reflection. Powerful music performed with fervour.

Yevhen Stankovych is regarded by many as the most important Ukrainian composer of his generation. His First Symphony for strings expresses both pathos and drama. The Second Symphony, with a dramatic requiem at its core, conveys a protest against war and stands as a monument to bravery and to those who perished. The Fourth Symphony is renowned for its romantic lyrical language and rich string sound.
