Stanyslav Lyudkevych was a composer, teacher, researcher of folklore, author of numerous choral compositions, songs, chamber works, or works for a symphony orchestra. His compositions were based primarily on traditional Ukrainian folklore. He created and worked in Lviv, but was born in Jarosław in 1879 and here he spent his youngest years attending the primary school and then the high school. Preoccupied with a passion for music, he studied at the Conservatory of Vienna where he earned his Ph.D. in musicology (previously graduated from the Faculty of Philology at the University of Lviv). A tremendous musical talent of Lyudkevych translated into a huge success on the professional level. The composer for many years was a lecturer and the head of the Department of Composition Theory of the State Lviv Conservatory. It was Lyudkevych who co-founded and directed Mykola Lysenko Music Institute in Lviv.
He died in 1979 in Lviv and was buried at the Lychakiv Cemetery in the first alley.
