The "Images of the Silver Land" sounded in the Transcarpathian Regional Philharmonic

The concert program of the penultimate concert at the XIII festival of classical and contemporary music "Musical constellation of Transcarpathia", which was performed in the great hall of the Transcarpathian Philharmonic, had a very symbolic title - "Images of the Silver Land." Three grand music pieces, that sounded in the hall on the 101st anniversary of the birth of the founder of the Transcarpathian professional musical culture in the second half of the twentieth century, composer, pianist, folklorist, conductor, teacher, musical and public figure Desiderius Zador, were deeply interconnected.

The concert began with the piece of music by the director of the festival, renowned contemporary composer Victor Telychko, a work that is directly related to the name of Desiderius Zador.

The Chamber Symphony "Reminiscence" by Victor Telychko in 4 parts for chamber orchestra is an original musical memorial cycle dedicated to four eminent figures in the professional musical culture of Transcarpathia in the second half of the twentieth century: Petro Miloslavsky, Istvan Marton, Semiramida Khosroyeva, Desiderius Zador. 


            During the concert of the festival "Music constellation of Transcarpathia", there was an important nationwide premiere of one of the last works of Desiderius Zador - a vocal-symphonic suite "At the cradle", which was created by D. Zador 40 years ago for chamber orchestra, mezzo-soprano and baritone based on Carpathian folk lullabies and with the lyrics by Mykola Petrenko in 6 parts. 

The concert program "Images of the Silver Land" finished with a piece by the young composer and our countryman Roman Medentsi that is dedicated to the memory of Desiderius Zador and was written for piano and dulcimer - 2 solo instruments, for which Zador wrote wonderful instrumental concerts.  


The concert "Images of the Silver Land" revealed the spiritual richness and skills of Transcarpathian professional composers tradition.
