Verkförteckning: s. 393-428. In Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, a statue honoring Mykola Lysenko as the father of Ukrainian classical music sits in front of the Opera House. But Lysenko was much more than a composer of operas; he was an internationally renowned pianist, a conductor, a choir director, a teacher, and the founder of a music school. More importantly to folklorists, he was Ukraine's first prominent ethnomusicologist, recording a wide variety of folk songs and collecting and describing folk musical instruments from venues throughout his native land. The authors seek to acquaint Western readers with the full range of Lysenko's contributions.
