Self-portrait of Lyudmyla Samodayeva

It happened that two times, in 1976 and 1985, I have graduated from the State Music Academy in the city of Odessa, Ukraine. The first time I followed the piano classes and the second time I followed composition classes, conducted by Professors and an Honored Artists of Ukraine L.N. Ginzburg and O.O. Krasotov accordingly.

Among the twenty century composers I am fond of I. Stravinski, V. Bartok, V. Lutoslawski, O. Messian, Ja. Ksenakis, L. Berio, R. Shchedrin, S. Gubaydullina and many others.

I started to deal with accordion music quite accidentally. In 1991 in Moscow I had a chance to be present during a rehearsal of Helicon, a Chamber Opera Theater. The staff of this young theater successfully competed with the famous Pokrovski Chamber Opera Theater. The Helicon staff rehearsed at that time operas Maddalena and Prodigal Son by S. Prokofiev and K. Debussy accordingly. Dmitriy Bertman, the contemporary theater art director, told me that in their small chamber orchestra, accordion substitutes all wind wooden instruments except of a flute. Also, he told me that the theater is strongly criticized for this by many critics, but in order to disclose this substitution they previously need to have a look into the orchestral pit.

I liked indeed this combination of accordion with string instruments. I felt that I ought to compose some special music pieces to be played accordion. Probably, this intention would remain unfulfilled till now, but fortunately, in 1993 I have made an acquaintance with Ivan Yergiyev, an Honored Artist of Ukraine. Being a high-class accordion player and a true lover of it, Ivan Yergiyev has introduced me into the world of accordion playing and demonstrated me all unique peculiarities and possibilities of this instrument. Since that our cooperation has begun. As of today, it resulted in the numerous chamber pieces for accordion, written by me.

Accordion is my favorite music instrument along with a violin, cello, clarinet, saxophone and a flute. Its capacity to realize different music ideas is really boundless. I am sure that in future many composers will compose their pieces especially for accordion due to its peculiarities and possibilities. Accordion can easily manage different modern music trends and tendencies. I think that every accordionist can play a modern music as Ivan Yergiyev does. I like his performances very much.
