Vadym Kholodenko discovered the deaths of his two small daughters last month at their home in Benbrook, Texas. His estranged wife, Sofya Tsygankova, was arrested and charged with murder.
Vadym has decided to return to the concert hall next week to play the second Saint-Saëns concerto with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Miguel Harth-Bedoya.
He has issued the following statement:
‘In this time of extreme loss and sorrow, I must look to music which has been so important in my life, and through which I can express myself. I ask those who will attend my concerts to also focus on the music. I continue to be grateful for those who are sending support from all over the world.’
