By the 130th anniversary of the birth of V. Barvinsky and the 145th anniversary of the birth of S. Rachmaninov In the framework of the European presentation of the CD-ROM by Violeta Petrichenko "The Silent Voice of Vasyl Barvinsky"

Vasyl Barvinsky is a prominent representative of the Ukrainian musical culture of the 20th century, composer, pianist, conductor, music critic, rector of the Lviv Conservatory. He wrote hundreds of genius works, most of which were destroyed directly in front of the author during his arrest in the courtyard of the Lviv Conservatory, and the composer himself was repressed in Siberia. After returning from the concentration camp Vasyl Barvinsky called himself a "composer without music" ...

In the musical heritage of the composer - symphonic, vocal-choral, instrumental works, among them "Ukrainian Rhapsody", "Ukrainian Wedding", "Testament", "In the First Years," Concerto for piano and orchestra. For many years, during the Soviet era, Vasyl Barvinsky's works were silent and not fulfilled.
