About

Due to the war in my country, Ukraine, all what is beautiful seems to become less and less important. An introduction to the brilliant music of Ukrainian composer Viktor Kosenko is my modest attempt to reverse this process.

“When music and courtesy are better understood and appreciated, there will be no war”  Confusius

Music-connoisseurs who know Viktor Kosenko acknowledge the genius of his works and affirm that his music should become familiair to every single musicfan in the world.

My name is Anastacia Tolstonog, solo pianist from Iv. Frankivsk Philharmonic. It is an honor for me to represent 11 études in the form of an old dance composed by Kosenko in 1928. This suite is a masterpiece on its own and when you want to make a comparison it can easily be compared to Chopins études op. 10 and 25.

Each étude is a complete piece of art which can be performed individually. It represents lyrical Romanticism, masterly combined with Ukrainian folk-elements resulting in a surprisingly original and unique music-language.

Besides being a great composer, Viktor Kosenko was a brilliant pianist and teacher. These qualities are reflected throughout all his works and it is very clear that all what he wrote was meant to serve a didactic purpose as well, making his work even more unique.

Why the World of Music was deprived of his brilliance for so long will remain a mystery. Together we can end this imperfection and making the world a little better with you supporting this project.

For the past year I studied the études from Kosenko and on invitation of the conservatory of Bratislava I played a concert and wrote a lecture about his life and works. Now I consider myself well prepared to make professional recordings. I found a good studio and producer in the Netherlands and with the help of you I hope to fulfill this duty.

Risks and challenges

The challenge is to endue Viktor Kosenko the audience he deserves.
