Fantaisie « Взяв Би Я Бандуру » pour violon seul, Op. 2, No. 1


The “Fantaisie « Взяв би я бандуру » pour violon seul” was a commissioned piece for a concert in Washington D.C., where I played for the Ukrainian Embassy in 2014, and in 2015. This was following the Maidan killing and the annexation of the Crimea by the Russians.I grew up with the side of my family that comes from Lviv (Ukraine), speaking Russian, and sharing the culture of two supposedly sister nations.  More   (Marc Bouchkov)

Mélodie pour violon seul, Op. 2, No. 2


Dora Vaitsner was my Great-GrandMother that I knew personally very well since I was a small child until she left us in 2013. She was the lone survivor of a very big family after the 1939-1945 war. Dora used to sing for herself while everyone else at home was getting louder and emotional. She always told me that all home and family conflicts and dramas were insignificant, the only thing that mattered was to be healthy and able to LOVE. I always was listening to those Yiddish humming melodies and trying to understand what she meant. This “melodie” is how I decided to make a little goodbye note to her. (Marc Bouchkov)
