Program notes for Five Stalks of Wheat

Now is the time. A country rises, a country with a rich cultural heritage coupled with years of repression, from the forced starvation of Holodomor to the current unjust invasion. A lone woman stands for the people of Ukraine. She fights against the unremitting ravages of war with strength, compassion and humanity; she is the present struggle for freedom the timeless beauty of the land.

The score weaves Ukrainian folk tales and melodies, along with Stalin's speech touting collective farming, Shevchenko's poetry, sounds of war and lost childhood, ultimately culminating in music evoking freedom, joy and hope for the future of the country.
