Alexander Shchetynsky

Christmas Tunes
for Oboe, Violin, Cello, Accordion and Piano

The piece has arisen on a crossroad of ingenuous melos of folk origin and sophisticated modern instrumental writing that gravitates towards so called "new complexity". In the beginning brief fragments of Ukrainian folk Christmas songs just for a moment come to the surface of colourful textural environment. Gradually they become more and more clear and in the end are transformed into festive dance.

The piece has been written for the Ensemble Wiener Collage.
