Yevgeny Stankovich

Yevgeny Stankovich (19/09/1942), an Ukrainian composer, born in Svalava. He studied composition with Adam Soltis at the Lviv Conservatory (1962-63), and with Boris Liatoshinsky (1965-68) and Miroslav Skorik (1968-70) at the Kiev Conservatory. In 1970 to 1976, he worked as an editor for Muzykna Ukraina, the only one music publishing house in Soviet Ukraine. For many years he is a professor of composition at the Ukrainian Music Academy (former Kiev Conservatory). He received many prizes and honorary titles in Ukraine, including the Taras Shavchenko State Prize for Symphony No. 3 for baritone, choir and orchestra on verses by Pavlo Tichina, the prominent Ukrainian poet of 20s-60s of 20th century (Stankovych received this the highest artistic award in Ukraine, when being 35 years old, that was rather unique case in Soviet Ukraine). His early works are influenced by Prokofiev, Bartok, Stravinsky and Webern. At the end of the 1970s he returned to a traditional style. Features as direct expressiveness, dynamism, large-scale of writing are typical of his music.
