EAST-WEST CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
The East-West Chamber Orchestra is comprised of outstanding soloists, including laureates of prestigious international competitions, and concertmasters and leaders of renowned orchestras, performing on exceptional instruments including Stradivaris, Guarneris and Guadagninis.
The ensemble, whose musicians hail from across the world, strengthens the bonds and cultural co-operations between Eastern and Western Europe and internationally, as well as operating as an orchestra for peace, and as ambassadors for transnational collaboration and cultural interaction.
The orchestra was founded in 2015 by Rostislav Krimer as orchestra-in-residence for the Yuri Bashmet International Music Festival. The orchestra is an active promoter of contemporary music and new repertoire, as well as creating new projects such as The Classical Night in Underground, which transformed a metro station into a concert hall, and Music Of Your Heart for babies and pregnant women. As well as performances with world class soloists, the ensemble regularly participates in charity events for children, working with UNICEF and collecting funds for children’s health programmes.
