Featuring Violin Soloist Vladyslava Luchenko

Lviv is a medieval city and one of the great cultural centers of Eastern Europe.  Music has always occupied the center and spirit of its existence. The path to creating a secular concert life in Lviv went through various stages and took many forms, starting from the guild of urban trumpeters and musicians, which united Italian, Serbian and Jewish chapels in the 15th and 16th centuries.  These artistic associations served as the basis for the creation of permanent professional musical ensembles and institutions that exist today.  In the heart of this cultural center on September 27, 1902, the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine was officially created when they performed their first concert in the Philharmonic Theater of Count Stanislav Skarbko (presently known as the Ukrainian National Academic Theater of Drama named after Maria Zankovetska). The Principal Conductor of the orchestra was Ludwik Vitezslav Czelianski. Since its creation, the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine has had some of the most famous conductors in classical music perform with them, including Kirill Kondrashin, Fuat Mansurov, Nathan Rakhlin, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, and Reinhold Gliere.  After two seasons as the Orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor, Theodore Kuchar was appointed the Principal Conductor of the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine in 2022.

Saturday, April 1, 2023, 7:30 p.m.

When we think of Georgian dance, we think of a celebration of life and the country’s rich and diverse culture.  Each dance portrays the characteristics of the region in which it originated.  The costumes are different for every dance and resemble the clothing of the past from different regions of Georgia.  Created by Gela Potskhishvili, Knight of the Georgian Order of Honor, the company’s co-founder, and co-director, the Royal National Ballet has done much to promote Georgian folk traditional culture.  The performance, called the Fires of Georgia, combines Georgian folk dances with modern attitude towards the choreography and costumes.  The company’s program illustrates the variety of the world’s folklore and classical dance elements, acrobatics, stunts, and temperament of the male dancers, as well as the graceful, charming, and gorgeous steps of the female dancers, also created by the company’s co-Artistic Direct Maia Kiknadze.
