I just finished listening to Lyatoshynsky music for the first time with this CD. What a real surprise it was! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lyatoshynsky sounds like early soviet era composers in that his music is energetic, colorful, and with faery tale/folk elements. The music has a real drive and was very pleasurable listening to it. I only wish he wrote more and that I "discovered" him earlier. To my ear, if one likes the color and volume of Gliere, the energy of Scriabin, the originality of Prokofiev, then they will surely enjoy this composer as well.
