With the 1945 publication of George Orwell's Animal Farm came an awareness that human and animal traits that might emerge in an uprising against totalitarianism. Of Beasts and Brutes playfully and seriously shines light on pigs, horses, and dogs, with a few insects and fish thrown into the mix. The songs also reference animalized brutes since the early Romans, up to and including modern times. Additionally, Ukainian translations of Russian favorites by Glinka, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff will be offered.
