Harmonia CD 4313


Drive down the right street in a metropolis like Cleveland, Pittsburgh or Chicago and you’re likely to miss it. But stop in front of a simple hall or church, suddenly you’re in another, unexpectedly rich world, a party that transports you to a village in rural Ukraine, a café in Croatia, or a black-tie ball in 1930’s Budapest.

Two generations of musicians celebrated for their performances of the music of their Eastern European homelands join forces to explore the shared musical roots of the culturally rich territories east of the Danube, from Hungary and Romania to Croatia, Slovakia and western Ukraine.Notes include song histories and translations

“obscenely talented” Washington, DC Folklore Society “Brilliant. Lush. Dazzling. Soulful.” SingOut!

Art of the cimbalom CD 4314


The cimbalom of Central and Eastern Europe, a large hammered dulcimer that demands extraordinary technical skill, is both a virtuosic solo concert instrument and source of the harmonic density and glistening color effects characteristic of Gypsy ensembles and village dances in lands around the Carpathian mountains. Alexander Fedoriouk, one of Ukraine’s greatest cimbalom players, is featured here performing fiery dances and delicate showpieces from Romania, Hungary and western Ukraine with an ensemble of top Eastern European instrumentalists.
