1 Silvestrov - 3 Postludien, Postludium No. 3  

In recognition of the two-year mark since the invasion of Ukraine, cellist Matt Haimovitz and Kharkiv-born pianist Nadia Shpachenko present Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov’s Postludium No. 3, a piece that “merges the cello and piano organically into one celestial, loving breath, a metaphor for the power of music to unify in a divisive world.” To Haimovitz, playing Silvestrov’s music and celebrating Ukrainian culture with native-born Nadia Shpachenko has been a wonderfully meaningful experience. The collaboration on this recording gave Shpachenko an outlet to convey her pain about the war, while projecting hope.
