PJSC "Ukrsotsbank", which operates under the UniCredit Bank trade mark, in the frames of Austria’s Days in Ukraine acted in support of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra concert, which will be held on April 12 at 19:30 at the National Palace of Arts "Ukraine".
Grand concert of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which brings together 110 musicians, being the first professional concert orchestra in Austria, one of the oldest in Europe, will be a real gift for the city connoisseurs of classical art. Kyivans and Kyiv guests will have the opportunity to listen to the famous works by Schubert, Bach and Strauss in the performance of virtuosos. In addition, during the acoustic rehearsals the artists of one of Europe's best teams will conduct a master class for music students of Kiev. Also this year Kiev Days in Vienna will be held in the capital of Austria.
Boris Tymonkin, CEO of PJSC "Ukrsotsbank", UniCredit Bank™: "In Ukraine, in fact, there are lots of connoisseurs of art. And it is very pleasant that the world art is coming to our country more often. We now host international musical competitions, exhibitions of world artists, days of cultures of different countries. We are pleased to join this trend, and I personally get a lot of pleasure when visiting such events."
The musicians in the Vienna Philharmonic are recruited from the Vienna State Opera Orchestra, where they must have played for at least three years. It was founded in 1842 by Otto Nicolai, and now Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra formally remains Philharmonic Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera, where all the musicians pass mandatory training.
The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra has never had the art director and does not contract with the conductors for any periods of time. Until 1933, the so-called "abonnement" conductor (Abonnementdirigent) was annually elected by general voting for the season in Musikverein, however it could be the same conductor during several years. Besides this, a touring orchestra conductors were specially invited for the festivals and the traditional New Year's concert.
