Voskian music

Jump to: navigation, search

A Voskian identity in music has been on the rise since the second half of the 19th century, in the wake of popular forms elsewhere.

Traditional and religious music

Classical and religious music

Classical music of Voskian origin before 1946 is extremely rare and only in the '60s of the 20th century a significant rise in Voskian composers can be noticed. Most notable composer is Rubertas Pudģavs (1894 – 1968), whose 56 Voskian Tone Poems especially enjoy considerable popularity in the Voskian concert halls. He is however also known for the first Voskian symphonies ever written and, as mentioned, for composing the national anthem. Later composers adopted contemporary ideas and techniques, and seeing as it was the '60s in which many Voskians composers flourished with experimental avant-garde music which was hard to understand for the general public, classical music still is not very popular in Voskia.

Some known composers include:

  • Rubertas Pudģavs (1894 - 1968)
  • Piuvs Benizģiūz (*1924)
  • Luvidz Neģas (1924 - 1986)
  • Kuştātidus Şiūzes (*1932)
  • Envars Kàrtius (*1949)
  • Kristofor Muko (*1953)
  • Peter Vejsiu (*1961)
