Ukrainian composer, pianist, conductor, and ethnomusicologist Mykola Lysenko was the central figure of Ukrainian music in the late 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. Now that the whole world is discovering Ukraine, it is timely to present Mykola Lysenko’s romantic classical music with a flair for Ukrainian folklore. Lysenko, similarly to Czech composers Dvorak and Smetana, and as a contemporary of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, incorporated national music traditions in his works.

Lysenko was an ardent supporter of Ukrainian folk music — He promoted the use of the Ukrainian language, and made a point of highlighting Ukraine culture in his works. For many people, Lysenko’s musical compositions reflect the heart of Ukrainian music.

Originally written as Serenade for Winds K.388 and then as Quintet in C Minor for Strings, K.406, Caspian Monday Music presents an oboe, violin, 2 violas, and cello version of the piece.

The concert will culminate with the ultimate masterpiece, Piano Quintet in E flat by Robert Schumann, which he composed during his very productive “year of chamber music.”
