Does our mentality really have gloominess and melancholy, and what is our true spirit of art — thoughtful, reflective or sad?

It appears that such feelings as grief and sorrow are important historical components of our lives, native Ukrainian folk symbols of the ancient tradition.

Therefore, it’s not surprising that the Ukrainian Muse often expresses indefinable bitterness and sings the “Song without Words” with quiet regret, and cries from emotional pain… This pain transforms into inspiration for further life and causes love for such a painfully different native Ukraine.

This is our native Ukrainian Sorrow! This is our native Ukrainian Elegy!

This is our silent Prayer for Ukraine!

***

“Ukraine–2022. Muses Are Not Silent” is a series of digital chamber concerts organized by Myroslav Skoryk Lviv National Philharmonic 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.
