Due to the acquaintance with Arkady Shilkloper and Vadim Neselovskyi we opened a new repertoire page, or better say, the whole world of jazz. As the legendary Nina Simone said: “Jazz is not just music, it’s a way of life”. And thanks to this acquaintance the symbiosis of classical music and jazz was born.
The sympho-jazz debut of INSO-Lviv orchestra took place in August 2015 with the concert in the Lviv Philharmonic Hall featuring the unique programme titled “Improvisation by Vadim Neselovskyi”. In 2016 we had a great honour to perform an opening concert of Alfa Jazz Fest in Lviv, on the Market Square Stage, with the programme composed by Vadim Neselovskyi for the occasion featuring Laura Marti under direction of Natalia Ponomarchuk.
As Maestro Neselovskyi said, to compose music and perform it being accompanied with a symphony orchestra was his cherished dream. And dreams, as we know, have a tendency to come true!
We have what to recall, what to talk about and, of course, to listen to jazz of the highest rank. So, we are happy to invite you to our online event on May 9th, beginning at 5:30 Kyiv time in INSO-Lviv Facebook page.
Traditionally, we’ll start with the live session to be moderated by our one and only guide into the world of jazz – Alexey Kogan, and will feature special guests: “Maestro of the jazz piano” Vadim Neselovskyi, unsurpassed jazz singer Laura Marti and multi-instrumentalist, the world-class musician Arkady Shilkloper.
We’ll also stream our recorded concert with Maestro Neselovskyi and Laura Marti, with the audio to be “broadcast” from the Lviv Philharmonic Hall into Tchaikovsky Street.
And, of course, get ready for pleasant surprises.
