Karabits: Concertos for Orchestra
Ivan Karabits: Concerto for Orchestra No 2 (17:05)
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra / Kirill Karabits
Following Ukraine’s independence in 1991, Ivan Karabits became the country’s leading musical figure. An inspirational composer, artistic director and teacher, he absorbed into his own music three particular traditions: Mahler, Shostakovich, and the folk-music of his native country. The colorful, virtuosic and at times theatrical Concertos for Orchestra reflect the influence of his friend and mentor, Rodion Shchedrin.
