The main emphasis of the programme is put on the theme of nature and elements in modern society in general and in Ukrainian culture in particular. The famous Ukrainian violinist, Valeriy Sokolov, will perform with the orchestra. Additionally, the young Bulgarian soloist-virtuoso and recipient of many prestigious international awards, Vivi Vassileva, will perform an incredible piece of music for percussion and orchestra by Tan Dun called “The Tears of Nature”, in which every section is dedicated to the latest major world ecological catastrophes. To conclude the programme, we will present the premiere of the Cantata for choir and orchestra by Zoltán Almási on the themes of Kupala songs. Together with the “KURBASY” ensemble, the audience will immerse itself in the world full of harmony and human-nature understanding, which was characteristic of ancient Ukrainian culture.
