The Cultural Forum “DONKULT” in Lviv
Music program

Lviv | 16.06.2015-30.06.2015

Piano and symphony concerts, evenings of vocal music and free improvisation, Donbas folk and performances and synthetic artistic events were held within the program.

One of the highlights of the music program was the presentation of the National Theater of folk song “Dyvyna” (Donetsk), presenting the folklore of Donbas, which was personally collected by the founder of the group Olena Tyurikova. A year ago, this ensemble was sprayed on the territory of Ukraine and abroad. However, during the preparation of the Kiev forum “DONKULT” different group members, which were in the capital, organized themselves and presented the first joint program, which caused great interest among visitors. Since the “Dyvyna” in this composition became a member of numerous festivals and initiated their own projects. Among the projects of the modern “new music”, it can be noted the “L’impossible | Territory of Impossible Dialogue” musical performance on the duet “Bluk” (Kyiv) and “Ensemble Nostri Temporis“ (Kyiv), which joint musicians from different regions of Ukraine and implemented two large projects in the field of contemporary music – ” Soundproofing I, II” on the territory of Donetsk plant “Isolation”.

In Lviv Opera was a great final event of the Forum – a concert “Golden Ukraine”, involving Kirill Karabits – world famous Ukrainian conductor, who in 2013 received the title of “Conductor of the year” according to the Royal Philharmonic Society, was the chief guest conductor of the Strasbourg Philharmoniс Orchestra, worked with Royal and London Philharmonic Orchestras, is the leading conductor of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (UK).
