Music of Serhiy Bortkevych
January 24 @ 2:00 pm
Pianist Pavlo Gintov performing works by Serhiy Bortkevych (also spelled ” Bortkiewicz “), an oft-overlooked Ukrainian composer. During his life, Bortkevych was oppressed and persecuted by both the Soviet and Nazi regimes. A brilliant pianist and composer, he was also a refugee and a survivor of two world wars. The style of Bortkevych’s music derives from the great Romantic composers of the 19th century. He adopted Liszt’s rich and brilliant piano writing, Chopin’s lyricism and humanness, the imagery of Schumann’s character pieces, and Wagner’s imaginative harmony.
