In light of the war that is taking place in my birth country, Ukraine, I have canceled all the performances of Russian repertoire until the end of the season (at least until October 2022), as a gesture of mourning for the victims in Ukraine. I consider that it is currently a taboo for any Ukrainian artist to be performing works by Russian composers, despite the history and the fact that many artists have fled, fought with the regime in Russia, and/or passed away before 1917. Currently Russian art is part of the Russian culture that is unfortunately, but logically used for propaganda by the Russian government. It has now acquired a symbolic meaning. As a Ukrainian-born individual, it is currently inappropriate for me to perform or publish recordings of Russian music. I hope that the events will de-escalate soon and it will become more acceptable at some point. This is everyone’s personal choice and this heavy decision is what actually feels right to me at the moment.
In memory of all the fallen in my country during this ugly, terrible, and inhumane war.
I am grateful for all the tremendous help of friends, both from Ukraine and from abroad. Together we stand united on our path to the victory of Ukraine in the fight for freedom.
A special thanks goes to Denis Zhdanov for the light assistance, sound/video recording, mastering & postproduction! This video project was realized through the support of ÖH & Hinker-Fonds, Gesellschaft der Freunde der KUG
