KYIV VIRTUOSI ORCHESTRA
Based in the capital of Ukraine, the Kyiv Virtuosi Symphony Orchestra has earned national and international recognition from both listeners and critics around the world as one of the country’s leading orchestral ensembles. With an average age of 30, this youthful orchestra unites talented musicians from all over Ukraine, most of whom are winners of various competitions.
The ensemble gained its reputation by popularising the music of Western composers in Ukraine, as well as enjoying a very close collaboration with outstanding contemporary composers such as Penderecki, Valentin Silvestrov and Myroslav Skoryk, among others. The orchestra’s unique sound and virtuosity has led to many collaborations with internationally acclaimed soloists and conductors. The members of the Kyiv Virtuosi Symphony Orchestra bring their high level of artistry together with their Ukrainian pride to a wide range of audiences.
Recent highlights include tours of Switzerland, France, Spain, Azerbaijan and Ukraine, and a concert series at the National Tchaikovsky Music Academy of Ukraine.
