Kyiv-Based Orchestra of Ukrainian, Russian and Israeli Musicians Performs in Akron

Tue 3/12 @ 7:30PM

The Kyiv Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra, led by Russian cellist Dmitri Yablonsky, formed in 2016. Since then the ensemble, which includes musicians from Ukraine, Russia and Israel, and is currently in residence in Italy, has performed across Europe, North America and in Israel. Its repertoire includes concert staples as well as work by Ukrainian composers.

Currently on a U.S tour that it’s dedicating to “peace in our time,” it will be stopping at Akron’s E.J. Thomas Hall as part of the Tuesday Musical Society series. The group will perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8; Felix Mendelssohn’s Piano Concert No. 1 and his “Fantasie Brilliante and Variations” for two pianos; Ukrainian composer Myroslav Skoryk’s “Melody,” and 19th-century Czech composer Ignaz Moscheles’ “Les Contrastes” grand duo for two pianos. In addition, Yablonsky will be featured in a cello concerto by 82-year-old Israeli composer Baruch Berliner.

Pianist soloist Alon Kariv and members of the MultiPiano Ensemble, all from Israel, will be joining the orchestra in Akron. Get more information and tickets here.
