The program will unite internationally recognized artists and musical classics of the XX-XXI centuries.
Realizing the importance of popularizing Ukrainian music, the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine, led by the famous Polish conductor Vincent Kozlovsky, will present Oleksandr Shymko‘s concert overture “Exaltation”. This work won the third prize in the All-Ukrainian Composer’s Competition “Ukrainian Concert Overture” in 2021. Written especially for the 30th anniversary of Ukraine’s Independence, the music seems to reflect the continuous, intense movement of national formation, leading to the omnipresent emotional fullness.
So it’s no coincidence that another iconic opus appears in the program, “Tod und Verklärung” by Richard Strauss. Even the meaning of this title, “Death and Transfiguration”, is thought-provoking because the soul of the sick artist, as mentioned in the symphonic poem by the composer, “leaves the body to find in eternal space the most glorious thing it could not fulfil here”.
On the way from inspired exaltation to spiritual transformation, the program offers to focus on the Violin Concerto No. 2 by Pierre Wissmer, performed by Eva Zavaro. The violinist is one of the leading French performers of her generation, known for her victories at the Johannes Brahms International Competition (2018) and winning the Georges Enescu Prize (2016). From the first sounds, listeners will feel the philosophical depth of Wissmer’s creative intention. Representing late Romantic and neoclassical styles, the author remains insightful even in the postwar 1950s.
