Viktor Kosenko (1896-1938) was one of the most important Ukrainian composers and pianists of the first half of the twentieth century. His music is the result of an organic synthesis of the late-Romantic piano tradition and elements of the national musical style. The innovative aspect of Eleven Etudes in the Form of Old Dances, Op. 19 lies in their unification of two different genres: they are both concert etudes and dances. They offer a combination of the late-Romantic piano tradition, Baroque dance forms, and Ukrainian folk music. These bright and clever pieces receive here their first-ever recording outside Ukraine. This recording of a neglected monument in the piano literature is the first step in the discovery of a composer who was once a cultural icon in his native Ukraine but is now as good as unknown outside its borders. A native of Kharkiv, Ukraine, Dr. Natalya Shkoda is the winner of numerous classical music competitions including the MasterWorks Festival Concerto Competition in Houghton and Keyboard Competition for the Contemporary American Music in both harpsichord and piano. Shkoda is active both as a performer and musical critic. She has given a large number of performances around the world.
