Ukraine musicians say rector has ‘no moral right’ to conduct Mozart’s Requiem

A row has erupted in Lviv over plans to perform Mozart’s Requiem in memory of those who died in the country’s popular uprising.

Musicians have circulated a protest, saying that the rector of the Lviv conservatoire, Ihor Pylatyuk, was a close political associate of the deposed ruler Victor Yanyukovich and was unfit to lead a commemoration to the demonstrators who died at the hands of his regime.
