The German violinist is indefatigable in raising funds for victims and refugees of Putin’s war.
She says: ‘The third and last Benefit this month for Ukraine. Words cannot express my deep gratitude to my dear friends Lauma Skride and Pablo Ferrández – Cellist for playing their hearts out for Save the Children Deutschland!

‘Everyone can and must help now. Words alone are not enough. This is a terrible humanitarian catastrophe. We must stand together with the people of Ukraine. I ask you from the bottom of my heart for your donation to Save the Children, so that as many children as possible in Ukraine and neighboring countries can be helped.’

    And all that to witness Lang Lang’s vulgar destruction of one of the monuments of the literature. I heard a broadcast of his performance of the Goldberg at the Philharmonie in Paris. It sounded like he must have carried a sledgehammer on stage to bang out the bass line on most of the repeats. What a travesty!

    All of us should remember that iu Ukraine year 2022 is proclaimed by the Ukrainian goverment as the year of Stepan Bandera -responsible foe Volyn genocide in 1943 ( hundreds of thousands of Poles, Jews, Hungarians were brutally killed by . It look loke Ukrainians ironicly are going to remember the year of Bandera for centuries
