Foreword. Introduction A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR


Since the publication of the first edition of this booklet interest in

Ukrainian folk music and instruments has continued to grow. This is

evident in the large number of new recordings and books that have

appeared on the subject during the past ten years. The independence

Ukraine finally gained has also brought on a change in the political

climate in Ukraine and the West. This has also sparked a new found

interest in Ukraine and its arts. The continued development and

perfecting of Ukrainian folk instruments by craftspeople both in Ukraine

and in the West has meant that some additions needed to be made. In some

cases information had to be changed. All efforts have been made to make

sure information in this booklet is up to date and accurate, without

making it overly extended Tunings of instruments have not been given

because many are not typical, similarly examples of folk-music material

have been avoided to keep the booklet within a project-like size.

Interest in traditional folk instruments is growing, not only in Ukraine

but also in the West. This movement, which started almost a hundred

years ago as an offshoot of the romantic movement, has been a valuable

tool in defining national identity and in developing a better

understanding of the cultural attributes of each nation. A similar

movement can be observed in the new-found popularity in Renaissance and

Baroque music in the West. Not only are recordings and music readily

available, but the quality of these works has become more sophisticated.

The audience is no longer able to accept "straight" performances of

ancient music but require that authentic instruments be used and that

the music being performed in an authentic style, even though such

"perfect" performances would have been a rarity at their time the music

was conceived.


This trend will most probably influence those who enjoy listening and

playing Ukrainian music. They will become more interested in the finer

points of the music, such as the use of authentic folk instruments and

their differences.


This booklet is an introduction to the folk instruments of the Ukrainian

people. It will allow you to gain a better understanding of the

instruments of this region and to understand appreciate what you are

listening to. It is written in a popular style to be accessible to all

and to enable its use for school projects and as a handy reference book,

without the use of too many technical terms that may cloud some of the

more interesting facts about an instrument. Much information has been

written and published about Ukrainian folk instruments, some of this has

been incorrect or outdated. The unfortunate problem is that this

information is often repeated. The author has made a great effort to

ensure that all the facts in this book are current and correct.
