About This Event

Ukrainian Art Song Project is extremely proud to presents

 Art Songs: Shevchenko and Shakespeare Featuring Pavlo Hunka & Albert Krywolt.

This program embraces the vision of comparing and contrasting the works of two great bards – Taras Shevchenko and William Shakespeare – through the medium of art song.  In this performance, art songs by classical Ukrainian composers which are based on the poems of Shevchenko, will be heard in the first half of the program, followed by a glorious song cycle by contemporary composer, Oleksander Jakovchuk, entitled Song of Love, based on 12 Shakespearean sonnets translated into Ukrainian by Ostap Tarnawsky.

Pavlo Hunka, internationally renowned bass-baritone known for his rich and resonant voice, will perform and interpret the songs accompanied by pianist Albert Krywolt.
