“A good number of poems, Ukrainian and German, have proved to be favourites among Ukrainian composers, particularly Oleksandr Oles’, Taras Shevchenko, Ivan Franko, Lesia Ukrainka and Heinrich Heine. However, it’s striking how each composer envisages the words. It’s fascinating to hear the same text to radically contrasting music. Herein lies the wealth of classical art song; many ways to compose, many ways to interpret what appears to be the same thought. But, is it the same?.. Come and decide for yourselves.”
