Song at Fairlight: A Celebration of Ukrainian Song with Rozanna Madylus

About this event

  • Rozanna Madylus (Mezzo-soprano)
  • Sholto Kynoch (Pianist)
  • Philip Ross Bullock (Speaker)

British-Ukrainian mezzo-soprano Rozanna Madylus is a former Oxford Lieder Young Artist and we are delighted to welcome her for this special programme of Ukrainian song. The programme will be introduced by Philip Bullock, setting the rich history of Ukrainian music in a wider cultural context.

Rozanna includes songs by Mykola Lysenko, the foremost 19th-century Ukrainian composer, as well as Yakiv Stepovyi and Kyrylo Stetsenko. She and pianist Sholto Kynoch also perform songs by Stefania Turkewich, increasingly recognised as one of the most important Ukrainian composers of the 20th century: she studied in Vienna and Berlin with Joseph Marx and Arnold Schoenberg, before fleeing the Soviets in 1946 and moving to England, where she died in Cambridge in 1977. Some of her songs were only discovered in 2010.

With selected folk songs also included, this promises to be a very special occasion, celebrating Ukrainian culture, music and poetry, and supporting the immense humanitarian efforts required by the Ukrainian people at this terrible time.

Tickets cost £15 (plus a booking fee) and include coffee and cake.

Gate: 10.30am
Concert starts at 11am
