7 German cities put on tour of Kyiv SymphonyNews
In a spontaneous gesture this morning, seven concerthalls in Germany booked a tour of the Kyiv Symphony Orchestra in order to save the group from disbanding for lack of funds.
The tour starts April 25 at Dresden’s Kulturpalast, followed by the Leipzig Gewandhaus, the Berlin Philharmonie and Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie. The orchestra is led by its Italian chief conductor Luigi Gaggero, with soloists Diana Tishchenko and Aleksey Semenenko.
Good for the Germans. The rest of the world’s concert halls just look on.
