The music of Ukraine has inspiredcountless artists and composers from myriad cultures. Through epic,thought-provoking works by Dvořák, Bartók, Prokofiev, and a new commission (20×2020 No.13) by Grammy-winning Ukrainian composer-conductor Virko Baley, we explore Slavic and Eastern European musical heritage.

Dr. Baley’s new work isinspired by the music of ethnic Tatars and gives voice to the current plight of Crimea. Lauded Ukrainian-American pianist Pavel Gintov joins as guest artist.
