John Stetch is a Canadian pianist of Ukrainian descent, and with this fine solo disc he consciously sets out to explore his heritage. Based largely on folkloric sources, the music is by turns contemplative and playful, with Stetch referencing jazz and classical harmonies and ethnic dance rhythms to create a program full of contrasts. Stetch is also quite the texturalist, pounding the piano’s low end for dramatic effect and delving inside the instrument for buzzing drones and atmospheric clatter. The swing flavor of “Carpathian Blues” and the strikingly beautiful melodic contours of “Savella” and “Children of Chornobyl” (sic) are among the key highlights.
