Sikora. Paganini. UFO
Date and time
27 October 2019, Sunday 19:00
Everyone has heard about the legendary violinist and composer Niccolo Paganini. His exquisite virtuosity and incredible music enthral us. There might not be a person who has not heard the story about how the maestro performed a piece of his work on a single string. We might also find ourselves thinking how fortunate those people were to live at the same time as Paganini did...
But what about modern geniuses? We have the opportunity to hear the music that is being created today and to get to know the works of composers who will become legends in time. We have a unique chance to become the first listeners of what might be masterpieces!
The world premiere of the work of contemporary American composer Emmanuel Sikora will be held at the Lviv Organ Hall.
Emmanuel began composing music as a child, learned to play the piano, violin, trumpet, and at an older age mastered the organ and is now the organist of the church in his native Cortland (USA).
Sikora's third piano concert in Lviv will be performed by Orest Kostruba together with the Ukrainian Festival Orchestra under the direction of Ivan Ostapovych.
