"Ave Love" - is the 8th musical album of Igor Zavadsky. As the previous three albums,
it consists of two disks. Translated from Latin, "Ave" means "angel greeting". In some other languages, for example, in German,
this means "hello" or "good-bye". Just like everything else in the world, love has its beginning and end if it refers to human
relationships. In this case, the appropriate translation would be: "Hello, love, good-bye, love". Some of the album's musical pieces are
close to this philosophy, for example, "Love", "Love Story" or "Ballade pour Adeline". In a broader sense, the meaning of love
implies its infinity. It is well demonstrated in the album in three "Ave Maria" duets, two songs about love to mother, and in
"Une Vie d'Amour". All compositions of the album were performed live during the concerts by Igor Zavadsky and other artists and
are united together by love to music and audience.
There is only one piece on the first CD which was included in the previous albums. It is F.Schubert's "Ave Maria".
The new version features Igor Zavadsky's button accordion playing in duet with violin for the first time. As in the other two pieces
titled "Ave Maria", the part of violin is performed by Ulrike Werner (Germany). Igor performed as accompanist in another
three pieces. The choir and soloists sing in them. Most compositions of the first CD are romantic pieces or retro music.
"In the Hall of the Mountain King" by E.Grieg presents a creative experiment of Igor Zavadsky where, apart from the
orchestra and choir, he included his instrument's part which underlines the main theme and adds modernity to this composition.
Recorded on the second CD are classic, original pieces, arrangements of Ukrainian music performed by domestic
musicians, and musette compositions of Gabriel Chantrieux, the famous French accordionist.
All recordings of "Ave Love" album were made during the concerts of Igor Zavadsky in Kyiv from January 21, 2008 to January 21, 2009.
