Right now the destiny of our country is being decided.
~Volodymyr Zelenskyy

I was introduced to Ukrainian composer Valentyn Vasylyovych Silvestrov's works while listening to a benefit piano concert. Raising money through playing pieces by Ukrainian composers is a wonderful idea.

Here are bagatelles by Silvestrov, who was born in 1937 and is still composing. (He fled Kyiv after the Russian invasion and is currently in Berlin.)

Beautiful, peaceful music. Nice to hear Silvestrov playing his own piece. I just wish his beautiful country was peaceful. :-(
