Myroslava Khomik commissioned “Rhapsody” for solo violin in memory of the innocent victims of political upheaval and violence in Ukraine, which was a very painful event for the Ukrainian diaspora all over the world. Now, it is a tribute to all innocent people who are victims of gun violence and political games which we see all around us.
