Composer, chairman of the National Union of Composers of Ukraine, Hero of Ukraine, academician, People's Artist of Ukraine, Shevchenko Prize winner - it's all about one man - known Transcarpathian artist Yevhen Stankovych. 70-year-old composer lives in Kyiv and, as he told during the press conference at the press center "Transcarpathia", is teaching at the Kyiv Academy and engaged in self-improvement.
"Unfortunately, I do not come to Transcarpathia very often. But I come at least once a year, because my mother lives in Svalyava and I try to visit her at least on her birthday. Unfortunately, I am often unable to come for various reasons - mostly domestic, not creative" - told Yevhen Stankovych. The composer is not too eager to talk about his life and the "agony of creativity" and says that in his life he has been very lucky to meet many good musical people, who helped him to become who he is now.
"I am extremely grateful to Yevhen Stankovych because he took the time to visit our final concert of the festival "Music constellation of Transcarpathia." When he comes to Transcarpathia, communicating with him evokes such a range of feelings in the musicians that they remain with them for a long time. he is our music school graduate and now a world-famous composer, whose music has already become a classic. Therefore, we are very pleased that he would honor our festival with his visit," - the Honored Artist, head of the Transcarpathian National Union of Composers of Ukraine, manager of the festival "Music constellation Transcarpathia" Victor Telychko noted in his speech.
