Mykola Lysenko: Piano Music, Vol. 1 - Rhapsody on Ukrainian Themes; Three Nocturnes; Four Esquisses; Elegie et al. / Arthur Greene, piano

Notes & Reviews:

As did Bartok later in Hungary, Mykola Lysenko (1842 - 1912), 'the father of Ukrainian classical music', fashioned a musical language - a uniting of the styles of Chopin, Liszt and the essence of Ukrainian folksong - through field research. This first CD of two presenting his piano music should prove a revelation: the opening First Rhapsody on Ukrainian National Themes, taking as its model the Liszt Hungarian Rhapsodies, is complemented by a series of delightful miniatures, all recorded for the first time.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
This release is Volume 1, so we can hope for more. All of the Toccata releases that have come my way uncover unknown piano treasures. They also keep finding excellent pianists like Greene, willing to immerse themselves in obscure repertoire and achieving masterly results.
