Gentle sounds of bandura, romantic art songs, jazz improvisations, and US premiers of Ukrainian chamber music - all in our concert inspired by the themes of revival of nature and human spirit. EarlyBird 25% ticket discount with code FOREST2023 valid until March 31st.

The moving and engaging program includes traditional and modern melodies played on a bandura (the iconic Ukrainian psaltery), rarely performed Italian and German art songs of the Romantic era, chamber music for solo piano and classical guitar, and jazz improvisations of your favorite songs. The art songs by Francesco Santoliquido, Robert Schumann, and Richard Strauss will be performed alongside the Ukrainian chamber music of the 19th and 20th centuries by Mykola Lysenko, Borys Lyatoshynsky, and Stanislav Liudkevych.
