This event of the festival will be a soft and warm greeting from sunny Spain. This time, the performance of Andriy Ostapenko, a regular participant in the festival, will be complemented by the sound of the flute performed by Nataliia Kozhushko-Maksymiv.

What does the “Idalgo Con Guitarra” evening have in store for the audience? Hot Argentine tangos from Astor Piazzola and Maxim Diego Pujol. Spanish guitar skills in the plays of Isaac Albeniz. And the melancholic mood of evening France in the music of Eric Satie.

A special addition to the evening will be coal, sauce and sangina – painting techniques that, in the hands of artist Olha Kuts, visualise the expression of classical Spanish guitar.

“Unity in diversity” 

Lviv is a city that combines a variety of European features, adoring its homeland. Despite the criminal actions of the enemy and thanks to the protection of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the city continues its artistic life. This year, for the eighth time, the Myroslav Skoryk Lviv National Philharmonic is hosting the VIII International Summertime Festival “Pizzicato e Cantabile”. Its founder and director has always been the renowned Ukrainian organist Olena Matseliukh.

The name of the festival “Pizzicato e Cantabile” refers to two opposite techniques of playing musical instruments – sharp plucking of strings and smooth melody. Every musician knows these words because it is through their combination that beautiful music is born.

This year’s Pizzicato e Cantabile festival also aims to unite, and the best slogan for this is “Unity in Diversity” – the slogan of the European Union. Because the ability to unite people for a common goal has now become the most important function of culture.

Therefore, at the festival, Ukrainian music will not be disconnected from European music, it will be performed not only by Ukrainian musicians, but also by our friends who have come to support Ukraine, and the hall will be filled with the sound of the world’s most famous sampled organ of Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral.

All of this, as well as many surprises, are combined in nine concerts of the Pizzicato e Cantabile festival. See you at the Lviv National Philharmonic.
