“Our Baсhiana” is a chamber music festival that continues the “Bach-Marathon” annual project, which the Lviv National Philharmonic organizes during the celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach’s birthday. Commonly, most of the world celebrates his birthday on March 21, according to the old calendar, because the Protestant Church in Germany embraced the Gregorian calendar in 1700, with the agreement that until 1699 all dates remained valid.

On the first day of the festival dedicated to Johann Sebastian Bach, you cannot ignore the well-known fact that most composers who lived after him, were raised with his music, every musician’s daily bread. Only by performing the music of the great masters can one become an educated musician, as Schumann was certain. And of course, listening to it.

Another fact is also undeniable: at the beginning of these artists’ careers, like at the beginning of spring, a picture of a bright future spirit appears around. Two carefully selected compositions in the concert program were written during the initial flowering of the talents of Robert Schumann and Vasyl Barvinskyi. You’ll hear Bach and chamber music of a romantic style. The concert on March 19 will show which thin threads run between them.

“Ukraine. Muses Are Not Silent” is a concert series in support of Ukrainian musicians during the russian armed aggression. Online concerts will become a platform for the uniting of the Ukrainian music community, as many musicians participating in these concert programs have become internally displaced people and have found shelter in Lviv.

We provide a free opportunity for the whole world to watch concerts on the official YouTube channel of the Lviv National Philharmonic. At the same time, we suggest our listeners from abroad make charitable donations to Ukrainian musicians who have stayed here in Ukraine.
