The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra dedicated their performance of Myroslav Skoryk's "Melody" to the people of Ukraine.

This is from a few weeks ago... says the video will only be available for a limited time, so watch as soon as you can.

So, I was just blown away by this performance of "Don't Mean a Thing" (Duke Ellington 1931) by Illia Bondarenko & Tetiana Zhmendak from 2014 in Kyiv (Ukraine Capital).

 

Where was Illia Bondarenko in 2022? 

In a Kyiv shelter - the basement, trying to play in between bombings!

Recently (2 months ago), Illia played a virtual duet with Yo-Yo Ma - "Dona Nobis".

A Message of Peace from Red Desert Violin - "Verbovaya Doschechka" - arranged by Illia Bondarenko.

Here's another one! 

1: I. Loboda: Requiem for violin solo. Dedicated to the endless sufferings of Ukraine

2: V. Silvestrov: Serenade for violin solo Solo: Gidon Kremer, violin 

 

During the first days of the war, Slovenian and Ukrainian Youth Orchestras established urgent collaboration in the effort to evacuate young musicians and their relatives from all over Ukraine to Slovenia. The goal was to move these people to a safe environment where they could continue general and musical education, their first mission and life goal, in the best possible context. Slovenian Youth Orchestra provided assistance in evacuation from Ukraine, first humanitarian aid, accommodation, concert activities, and help for more extended family stay.
