Apollo Chamber Players

Ukrainian Muse

World Premier Commission by Virko Baley

The music of Ukraine has inspired countless artists and composers from myriad cultures. Through epic, thought-provoking works by Dvořák, Bartók, Prokofiev, and a new commission (20x2020 No.13) by Ukrainian composer-conductor Virko Baley, we explore Slavic and Eastern European musical heritage. Dr. Baley’s new work is inspired by the music of ethnic Tatars and gives voice to the current plight of Crimea. Lauded Ukrainian-American pianist Pavel Gintov joins as guest artist.
