- Hungarian composer and 20th century music education pioneer Zoltán Kodály wrote the Dances of Galánta based on folk music he heard as a child.
- GRAMMY® nominated composer Anna Clyne’s DANCE is performed by Inbal Segev, the artist for whom it was written. Each of the five movements in the piece is inspired by a line in a poem by 13th century mystic Rumi.
- Ukrainian composer Myroslav Skoryk’s Melody for Symphony Orchestra has become a rallying cry for his homeland.
- One of Tchaikovsky’s most joyful compositions, Symphony No. 2 was written while spending the summer in Ukraine. The piece melds Western and Russian symphonic structures with the music of Ukrainian folk songs, reflecting the confluence and collision of cultures through centuries of coexistence and conflict.
