And our concert is a confirmation of this. The works of Johann Sebastian Bach will be performed in interesting and extraordinary, multi-style and “driving” arrangements by Andriy Yatskiv and Serhiy Gurin. We are excited! And Bach is smiling…

Tuesday 26.03.2024 / 19:00. Perpetuum Mobile

If you close your eyes and listen to the first of the pieces on this program on the accordion, a truly special instrument, you might think that a mighty organ is playing. Or an entire orchestra. Because the timbre possibilities of the accordion, namely its register nature, allows you to perform a wide variety of music from different eras and genres and instruments completely different from the accordion, as it seems at first glance.

Today, there is a vivid tendency to expand the accordion repertoire, so you will hear both arrangements and original compositions by the young talented musician Denys Snigiriov.

Thursday 28.03.2024 / 19:00. Memory about City

London, Prague, Mariupol – once upon a time, these names could have been placed on a traveler’s map, in a note with vacation plans, or in a photo album. Nowadays, we often remember them in a different context: cities that help, shelter, support, or wait for us to return. The program of the Lviv Virtuosos Academic Chamber Orchestra and conductor Parviz Yahyavi will be connected to these cities.

The concert will begin with Zoltan Almasshi’s City of Mary, which tells the story of a city that defended itself to the last, in which there was less fear than courage, and despair than hope. The concert will continue with one of the best classical instrumental serenades – Serenade by English composer Edward Elgar, which has become not only a landmark work in the composer’s oeuvre but also one of the gems of British music. In the best traditions of orchestral evenings, the orchestra will end the concert with hope and bright moods, presented by one of the best instrumental serenades in the history of music – Antonin Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings in E major.

Friday 29.03.2024 / 19:00. Tree of Life

An evening of the most diverse classical music performed by soloists, choir and symphony orchestra will not leave anyone indifferent: this is how the mighty Symphony of Life grows from the first, fragile single sounds.

In this program, one of the composers has the name of the main villain from the Sherlock Holmes universe. No more intrigues, but still a lot of interesting things: this evening, the famous overture from the opera The Thief of Magpie by Italian Gioacchino Rossini and the contemporary symphony The Tree of Life by American composer Richard Moriarty will be performed in a free-spirited manner. The distance between the works is more than two centuries, and each author has put his own principles and beliefs into the sound of these compositions, which are worthy of attention.
