Description: Lysenko wrote only two original pieces for violin and piano (aside from the Stetsenko transcription, the others are by the composer and all are from solo piano pieces). For style, see above; all applies to these works too. Kaminsky (also Ukrainian), transcribed 10 Lysenko songs (and the piano Valse brillante) for this recording; here Lysenko widens his stylistic net to include contemporary German and Polish styles. Solomia Soroka (violin), Arthur Greene (piano).
