Description: Lysenko’s six-number suite takes Ukrainian folk themes and fits them marvellously into the form of a baroque suite with the usual dance forms. Zhuk brings a Lisztian virtuosity to his six-minute Rhapsody. Revutsky’s pieces are Chopinesquely Romantic in style while Skoryk has great fun in his three showpieces based on Spanish music, blues and honky-tonk (!). Anna Shelest (piano), Dmitri Shelest (duo).
