Obituary: Anna Gavrilets, Ukraine
Published: Mar 29,2022

Ukrainian composer Anna Gavrilets died on 27 February 2022. A student of Myroslav Skoryk, she was one of the brightest representatives of the Lviv school of composition. Anna worked in various musical genres and was the composer of symphonic, chamber, instrumental, and choral works. She gained the greatest popularity and recognition through her choral compositions, which embody the intonations of ceremonial folklore. Elements of rituals and ancient spells came to life in her musical and stage performances. Beginning at the turn of the millennium, Anna also symbolized eternal Biblical images in her compositions. Anna Gavrilets' works are regularly performed at concerts and festivals in Ukraine, Europe, United States, and Canada. May she rest in peace and may her choral works be sung all over the world for peace.
