Bortnianskyi's choral concertos

Dmytro Bortnianskyi's creativity is a remarkable phenomenon in the musical art of Eastern Europe of the Classicist era. He is one of the outstanding European artists who have reached the heights of international recognition. As a result of his artistic pursuits, an original, stylistically integral creative heritage was formed and it's techniques of compositional writing which had a significant impact on followers. The composer's talent was most fully revealed in the field of sacred music, which has always been one of the dominant genres in Ukrainian musical culture. His work clearly shows stylistic features of classical aesthetics, especially clarity, simplicity and integrity of artistic images, the regularity of their development, perfection of form, restraint in the expression of emotions, simple and logical harmony, song melody.

The National Academic Choral Capella "DUMKA" presents the publication of the first in independent Ukraine edition of 35 spirit choral concertos a capella by our great compatriot Dmytro Bortnyansky. This publication is based on the Peter Tchaikovsky edition (1881), the 1925 edition (Lviv) and the 1974 reprint (Toronto). For reasons of practical performance, the compiler has added some minor adjustments without breaking Tchaikovsky edition.

The project is implemented with the support of The National Ukrainian Music Union and the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation.
