ETUDES, along with other cycles for piano¹, were written as a dedication to Antonii Baryshevskyi’s 30th anniversary. ETUDES – three different exercises – embody action for the action’s sake. ‘If Nocturnalies is the sound screen that separates us from what is happening. Then ETUDES is what is happening itself’ Svyatoslav Lunyov.
¹Among them are TROLLING’S STUDIES, 13 ROOMS WITH A VIEW TO THE NORTH-WEST, NOCTURNALIES, and SATURNALIES. In total – 30 pieces.
I – Vertigo
II – Tin
III – Escape
First Performance: Antonii Baryshevskyi, Kyiv, 2019
