Description

These summer days in Ukraine are filled with sounds of air raid sirens informing about continuous threats because of the endless Russian-Ukrainian war. However, famous American composer of Chinese origin, Wang Jie, came to the western part of Ukraine, Lviv, to hear the local premieres of her two pieces by the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra.

During the interview for The Claquers, she emphasized: “My personal safety and concerns were just trivial compared to the feeling that I needed to be here in person. I can’t really explain it, but I had to do it. I was very compelled to overcome all the difficulties of the travel and the logistics to be here.

August, 20 Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra will play two of her pieces: “When I think of an entire country of people who are suffering in this much uncertainty, I think about how music could, for one brief moment, just these 12 minutes, that everybody could have the certainty of being together in a meaningful way.

I think that’s the power of music. That is the universal spirit that we share. And it doesn’t matter that I live in United States and I’m American artist. It ties our hearts together through this music”, Jie said.
