In February, 2022 the world looked on in horror as Ukraine was invaded by Russian troops. Like millions of others, I wanted to help, so this arrangement of op.39 by the Ukrainian composer, Mykola Lysenko, is my own personal contribution of support for the victims. The title [trans: sorrow] and the style of the music reflect my sense of sorrow at what is happening in Europe right now, and the sonorité of the alto flute perfectly captures the appropriate soulful quality. The edition is dedicated to the people of Ukraine and to all those who support peace.
Mykola Lysenko (March 22, 1842 - 24 November, 1912) is an important figure in Ukrainian musical history and regarded as the father of the nation’s national style of composition. The music school in Kviv is named after him. Lysenko collected and published a large number of folk songs as well as composing songs set to texts by Ukrainian poets. He studied orchestration with Rimsky Korsakov and his output includes several large scale compositions.
