Angoisse (Anguish) for flute septet
Mykola Lysenko (1842-1912) is regarded as the “father of Ukrainian classical music”. As did Bartok later in Hungary, he went out into the community, listened to what the people were singing, and fashioned an individual musical language that brought together the styles of Chopin and Liszt while featuring the essence of Ukrainian folksong. This arrangement is based on the original piano composition, presenting a mellow and very expressive rendition of the original.
